This event has ended.

Shin Gallery presents a recreation of the 1941 Danish exhibition Thirteen Artists in a Tent with works from the 1930s -1950s by Else-Fischer Hansen, Ejler Bille, Egon Mathiesen, Else Alfelt, Hans Scherfig, and Svavar Gudnason. The dauntless collective Helhesten (The Hell Horse), arranged a curious exhibition in a large carnival tent located in a park north of Copenhagen during the occupation of Nazi Germany. The exhibition served as a critical testing ground for negotiating the at times convergence of cultural regeneration and crisis in Europe during times of political unrest.
