Kunstnernes Påskeudstilling (KP – The Artists’ Easter Exhibition) is one of the five state-recognised juried exhibitions in Denmark. Anyone is welcome to submit works for the exhibition, giving both established artists and new talents the opportunity to present their works to a wider audience. The selection of works is handled by a specially invited jury consisting of five artists who base their choices on artistic qualifications. The Artists’ Easter Exhibition thereby presents some of the cutting-edge movements and trends found within the arts today.
SPRING is a group exhibition featuring a small selection of artists who have made a strong impact at previous instalments of The Artists’ Easter Exhibitions.
The Artists' Easter Exhibition in 2020 was cancelled due to COVID-19. Therefore, the artworks selected for KP20, and the talent show SPRING20 will be presented at The Artists' Easter Exhibition in 2021.
Simultaneously with KP20 & SPRING20, The Artists' Easter Exhibition 21, called KP21-digital, will be presented as an online digital exhibition. The 16 digital works has been selected by the artists Amalie Smith, Signe Klejs and Jacob Tækker.
KP defines digital art "as artistic design, which has digital and electronic media as the basis for an art practice. The works can be cross-aesthetic (visual media, music, performance, lighting, etc. in the same work), and/or contain interactive aspects.

The audience award of 10,000 DKK is awarded towards the end of the exhibition period to an artist who has exhibited on either KP20 or SPRING20.
