To some, sport represents a free space, communal activities, and self-development whereas others experience it as frightening, excluding, and associated with rivalry, extremism, and unhealthy body focus. This duality is the subject examined in Art of Sportas the exhibition paints an all-round picture of the nature of sport. Via a number of works by national and international artists, CC zooms in on the hero worship and idolisation associated with sport, its gender and ethnicity codes, its mechanisms for inclusion and exclusion, and the relationship of sport with politics, power, and money.

You can look forward to experiencing works by more than thirty major artists, including Mark Bradford, Sarah Lucas, Louka Anargyros, Sylvie Fleury, Jeff Koons, Kota Ezawa, Hank Willis Thomas, Lyle Ashton Harris, Olaf Nicolai, Paul Pfeiffer, Nicolai Howalt, Rineke Dijkstra, Thierry Geoffroy, Catherine Opie, Erik A. Frandsen, Lea Guldditte Hestelund, Robert Mapplethorpe, Camille Henrot, and many more.
