Turning the page in the Chronicles of Gallery Poulsen
Walking down the old cobblestone streets of the Brown Meatpacking, between the brown buildings with iron-paned windows hiding all sorts of cultural delicacies behind them, you are almost transported back to a bygone era. The well-preserved building constructions provide the presence of history. As soon as you walk through the door, however, the contrast is striking. A parallel universe opens itself behind the door, alluring us to come inside. Right there on the corner of Staldgade, among the brown buildings that stretch as far as the eye can see, we find ourselves in the midst of the hurricane's eye of a booming cultural life of theaters, food courts and artist studios. Here, we have created our own little corner of New York in the middle of this Copenhagen quarter that both challenges and embraces us.
On a sunny March day, just two months ago, we opened the doors to our very own slaughterhouse, converted into a clinically cool and perfect match for our ruthlessly ambitious artist team, who now has three times the space to unfold.
Jean-Pierre Roy inaugurated our new space with his intense world of gaunt desert landscapes and faceless giants. His critically acclaimed solo show ”Certain of My Uncertainty” surely set the tone for a brand new framework that go far beyond anything we have previously been able to do. Now, only the sky is the limit!
The grand opening was a grand affair in great company! We had the honor of having the Copenhagen mayor of Culture & Leisure Carl Christian Ebbesen give the inauguration speech as well as Danish diva Maria Montell to entertain our guests with her sweet jazzy tunes.

Nicola Verlato: ”New Methodological Foundations for Contemporary Painting"
Walking inside Nicola Verlato's new solo show is like walking straight into two different time periods, merged into one. Massive, large-scale masterpieces draw us in with their alluring golden bodies, letting us know that we have entered a time pocket of Renaissance. Verlato's specially designed digital app "The Merging" wraps the artworks in a 3D veil of possibilites to explore every element in multi dimensions. Download "The Merging" app on your smartphones as you enter the show and see Verlato's beautiful sculptures come to life in 3D right in front of your eyes!
