Who we are:

Creator Projects is a Copenhagen-based art agency. We are a team of curators and creative people passionated about the potential of art to make a change in society and in the spaces of living. We value art as a vital catalyst for dialogues, debates, and dreams of our times. With this vision in mind, we conceptualise, curate and develop meaningful and innovative art exhibitions, public commissions, strategic plans for art institutions, festivals and other private organisations, in Denmark and abroad. Our commitment in supporting arts and create experiences for a broader audience includes running the publishing house Roulette Rousse dedicated to art and artists’ books. Our work is based on extensive professionalism, longstanding practical experience and a comprehensive national and international network. Creator Projects is owned and operated by founder and director Simon Friese. 

What we do:

  • We work on commissions for both public entities (municipalities, institutions and organizations) and private enterprises.
  • We curate exhibitions and public programs for art museums and kunsthalle in Denmark and abroad.
  • We develop independent art projects like our mail art project M.M.S. (Much. More. Shit.).
  • We publish art and artist’s books through our publishing house Roulette Russe.
  • We provide art advisory to public and private entities.
