When you want to go from gallery to exploring the art of the streets Gallery Grisk is a great place to start. Galleri
Street Art og gade-gallerier
Galleri Grisk is an untraditional gallery with art on the walls from both Danish and international street artists. The gallery is on Thorvaldsensgade 33a and here you can easily begin your tour around the streets of Aarhus. On Sonnersgade/Valdemarsgade you’ll meet a piece by Peter Birk, one of the guys behind Gallery Grisk. Further down Valdemarsgade is another mural, the street art portrait of David Bowie by the artist Jesper Klikkenborg.
These streets are also around Godsbanen and Institute for X where you can find several pieces if you give yourself the time to really stop and look. Institute for X is a collection of shipping containers that have been transformed into quirky coffee bars, shops, workshops and bike repair shops among other things.
Continue your street art tour further into the city in the Latin Quarter where you’ll find art works at the end of buildings, on walls and wherever else you find yourself gazing.
The centre of Aarhus has a lot of fascinating sculptures that you’ll meet out and about in the streets. Make sure to check out ‘Harbour workers by Dokk1’ at Dokk1 by Jens Galschiødt, ‘Poseidon’ on Hack Kampmanns Plads by the artist group A Kassen and ‘Bernhardt Jensen på cykel ved Magasin’ right by Frederiksgade 1 by Jan Balling.
