MEGA EVENT AND INAUGURAL TRIENNIAL
Presented by ARoS Aarhus Art Museum
The ARoS Art Museum stages its inaugural ARoS Triennial, THE GARDEN – End of Times; Beginning of Times. The theme, explored in 3 iterations, will reflect upon humanity’s depictions and alterations of nature. THE GARDEN will be the largest exhibition staged by the museum and within the city of Aarhus. Spread over several venues around the city, including the two main gallery spaces at the ARoS and along 4 km of coastline surrounding the city, the Triennial will feature work by a range of international artists.
The PAST will explore the landscape tradition and depiction of nature viewed through the lens of art and the history of ideas, presented at ARoS Aarhus Art Museum. The basis of the exhibition will be the Baroque garden architecture of the mid-1600s, as well as German Romanticism in the early 1800s, the breakthrough of Modernism at the beginning of the 20th century and Land Art of the 1960s.
