Today the gallery represents mid-career and established national and international artists working in different media, approaches and genres. In common the artists share a conceptual narrative and an interest in investigate and explore critical dissemination of current values and conflicts in today’s globalised society. For more than a decade, the gallery has participated yearly in three international art fairs–Art Basel, Art Basel Miami Beach and Zona Maco in Mexico.
Since its inception Nils Stærk has contextualised the gallery program by developing and establishing collaborations with in particular the Central and Latin-American art scene, as well as art institutions, biennales and galleries throughout the world with the primary priority to create new projects and opportunities for the artists as well as placing their work in important art collections.

In Spring 2017 the gallery re-located to the raw industrial Northwest part of Copenhagen in a 500 m2 former car workshop and is now dedicated to five yearly curated solo shows alongside a showroom for changing presentations. The Northwest part of Copenhagen still bears the mark of a raw aesthetic and this contrasts with the open minimalistic interior designed by Henning Larsen Architects. This aesthetic is perfectly matched with the gallery’s artistic profile.

In his photographs of sun-filled Los Angeles interiors or flora-dense backyards, Norwegian-born artist Torbjørn Rødland flirts with his viewer by contrasting clinical level hygiene with elements of contamination and excess.
