COPENHAGEN.- The Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek Board of Directors has appointed museum director Gertrud Hvidberg-Hansen as new director of the Glyptotek in Copenhagen. Gertrud Hvidberg-Hansen will take up the post on 1 March 2020 and hence leave her current post as director of Faaborg Museum.

Morten Kyndrup, acting Chariman of the Board of Directors says:
“Gertrud Hvidberg-Hansen is the right person at the right time to consolidate and continue the very positive development of the Glyptotek over the last few years which Christine Buhl Andersen has been in charge of. Gertrud has a broad museum experience and excellent management skills, and she is extremely competent in the field – thus well equipped to lead one of Denmark's largest, best and most beautiful art museums.”

Museum Director Gertrud Hvidberg-Hansen says: “I am looking forward to heading one of the country's finest museums with an international scope. At the Glyptotek art and architecture come together to form a unity, and the beautiful collections from different cultures and times interact in a way not found anywhere else in Denmark. The museum has in recent years attracted positive attention through large and well-attended research-based exhibitions and innovative learning formats. I look forward to working with the staff to move the museum further along on its journey in a knowledgeable and inspiring way, so that it will continue to flourish and stay relevant to the public at large."

Gertrud Hvidberg-Hansen (born 1968) holds a MA in Art History and French from the University of Aarhus. Since 2013 she has been director of Faaborg Museum. Gertrud Hvidberg-Hansen began her museum career in 1998 as a curator at Trapholt, before she became a curator at Funen Art Museum / Odense City Museums in 2000 and subsequently took up the position as director of Faaborg Museum in 2013.

Through her previous employments Gertrud Hvidberg-Hansen has carried out several research and exhibition projects in the field of art and architecture, and in recent years she has been in charge of a major strategic development at Faaborg Museum. Parallel with her museum work, Gertrud Hvidberg-Hansen serves on a number of boards and trusts.

Gertrud Hvidberg-Hansen takes up the post of Director at the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek on 1 March 2020, at which time the current Director Christine Buhl Andersen will step down to take on the post as Chairman of the New Carlsberg Foundation, and in that capacity she will also take over as Chairman of the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek.
