V1 Gallery opened in a defunct bakery on the 22. November 2002 in Abselonsgade 21, Copenhagen, Denmark. Founded by Jesper Elg (Director and founding partner) and Peter Funch (Artist and founding partner, based in NY). The opening exhibition was Faile (NYC based artist collective) in dialogue with AKAY (Swedish) and one of the first guests was Mikkel Grønnebæk (Co – director and partner). V1 moved to a larger space in a former butchery in 2007 on Flæsketorvet 69 -71, Copenhagen, Denmark. The gallery represents a select group of emerging and established artists and is committed to introducing art, in all media, to an international audience. Seeing art as a profound and competent media for social and political discourse, the gallery aspires to serve as a platform for art that interacts with the surrounding (global) society. V1 gallery take part in art fairs around the world, collaborate with museums and other art institutions and curate exhibitions for private and public institutions. The title “ Tonight We Won’t Be Bored – 10 Years Of V1 Gallery “ pays tribute to the song Tannhauser / Derivè by the band Refused. The exhibition gathers some of the artists who have earlier exhibited in V1 Gallery, artists who are currently represented by the Gallery and a selection of artists new to V1. The exhibition will mainly consist of new works in a variety of media.

V1 Gallery åbnede i et nedlagt bageri den 22. november 2002 i Abselonsgade 21, København V. Galleriet er grundlagt af Jesper Elg (gallerist og partner) og Peter Funch (kunstner og partner, bosiddende i New York). Åbningsudstillingen var en dialogudstilling mellem Faile (amerikansk kunstnerkollektiv med base i New York) og AKAY (svensk anonym kunstner), og en af de første gæster var Mikkel Grønnebæk (gallerist og partner). I 2007 flyttede V1 Gallery 800 meter til større lokaler i et nedlagt slagteri på Flæsketorvet 69 – 71, Kødbyen, København V. Galleriet repræsenterer en udvalgt gruppe internationale kunstnere og er engageret i at introducere kunst i alle medier til et stort publikum. V1 anskuer kunst som et kompetent medie i forhold til en social og politisk diskurs, og ønsker at agere platform for kunst, der interagerer med tiden og samfundet. V1 Gallery deltager på kunstmesser i hele verden og samarbejder med museer og andre kunstinstitutioner. V1 Gallery kuraterer udstillinger for både offentlige og private kunstinstitutioner Titlen “Tonight We Wont Be Bored – 10 Years Of V1 Gallery “ er en hommage til sangen Tannhauser / Derivè af bandet Refused. Udstillingen samler et udvalg af kunstnere som tidligere har udstillet i V1 Gallery, de kunstnere galleriet repræsenterer og en gruppe kunstnere som er nye i V1 regi. Udstillingen består hovedsageligt af nye værker.
