The Garden - The Past
8 April until 10 September 2017
Read the Curatorial Statement from the catalog The Garden - End of Times, the Beginning of Times by Erlend G. Høyersten, director at ARoS
In 2017, ARoS presents the first triennial entitled THE GARDEN – End of Times; Beginning of Times. The exhibition will extend over two entire galleries at the museum as well as carefully selected locations in the urban landscape, and a coastal stretch along the bay bordered by woodland just south of the city. This will create an art zone spanning more than four kilometres.
The Past at ARoS examinens the landscape and man’s relationship with nature seen from an artistic and ideological perspective in a gigant exhibition on 2 floors.
