Galleri Image is a non-commercial public gallery for camera based art, founded in Aarhus in 1977 as the first so-called “photo gallery” in Scandinavia. For the first several years after it was founded, Image was the only exhibition space dedicated to photography in Denmark. Photography has however since gained a place in the established art world, and in an effort to stay true to our founding ideals, Image has widened our artistic horizon, displaying a wide variety of art forms that make use of or are in dialogue with cameras and photographic techniques. We follow through on an ambition to disseminate camera based art with exhibitions that embrace photography, video, installation and computer art.
Our annual programme encompasses five to six solo- and group exhibitions by Danish and international artists. Through the years, Image has promoted a long list of groundbreaking and inventive artists, and to this day the space hosts ambitious fine art exhibitions with established artists as well as emerging talents. Among the artists who have exhibited in Galleri Image, are legendary names such as Diane Arbus, Duane Michaels, August Sander, Imogen Cunningham, Christer Strömholm, Allen Ginsberg, Joan Fontcuberta, Martin Parr, Carlos Garaicoa, Wang Ningde, Mario Cravo Neto, Kyungwoo Chun, Amy Stein and Katarzyna Kozyra.
In connection with Galleri Image’s rotation of exhibitions, we organise seminars that relate to the themes of the current exhibition with the artists as well as other relevant experts and academics. In the hopes of contributing meaningfully to a vibrant international presence in Aarhus and supporting up-and-coming talents, we’ve arranged residencies for artists from all over the world, often as part of our collaborative efforts with established curators and art institutions. Image participates in major global festivals, where we present travel exhibitions, and in the past few years, we’ve curated exhibitions in China, Korea and India as well as a number of European countries.

Since 2014, Galleri Image has organised the festival Photobook Week Aarhus in a collaboration with the Aarhus School of Architecture. Photobook Week Aarhus’ programme represents an examination of the photobook’s role and development as an artistic medium. Learn more at PWA’s website here.
In 2013, Galleri Image began the project FRESH EYES – International Artists Rethink Aarhus, a collaborate effort between Galleri Image and Aarhus Centre for Literature as a part of Aarhus Culture Capital 2017. During this period, 11 international photo artists and 7 writers were invited to Aarhus in a years-long project that culminated in an urban exhibition and an art book about Aarhus. The project continues today at Godsbanen in Aarhus, where several of the works from the FRESH EYES exhibition are on display.
COLLABORATION AND NETWORKS
Galleri Image is an active participant in a number of networks and associations in Denmark and internationally. Since 2014, Galleri Image has been a member of The Danish Association of Art Centres, which was established in 1992 and now consists of 18 public art institutions. In a Scandinavian context, we’re co-founders of the Nordic Photography Network, which is made up of our sister institutions in Iceland, Finland, Norway and Sweden. We are also a part of PARALLEL: European Photo Based Platform, a network of international cultural institutions and festivals in Europe, which aims to strengthen cooperation in the European photo art world.
