The exhibition period of the ARoS Triennial The Garden – End of Times, Beginning of Times is coming to an end. The outdoor sections The Present and The Future closed on 30 July and the indoor section The Past, showing in two galleries at the museum, will be closing on 10 September and 22 October, respectively.

The Triennial has attracted intense international media coverage and was mentioned in CNN Style, The Guardian, The Sunday Times, Vogue, and the German television channel ZDF. Also art journals including Frieze, Artnet, the Art Newspaper, and Monopol have covered the exhibition. In total, ARoS and the ARoS Triennial have had more than 1160 international digital press postings, resulting in Advertising Value Equivalency (AVE) totalling some DDK 77 million in 2017.

- We had three clear objectives with the Triennial. Firstly, we wanted to intensify international awareness of ARoS Aarhus Art Museum and what we stand for; secondly, the Triennial should be of high artistic quality and, thirdly, seen as a whole, the exhibition should attract high visitor numbers. We’ve achieved all of these, says Erlend G. Høyersten.

A total of 863,500 people have so far visited the ARoS Triennial. Of these, almost 300,000 bought tickets for The Past at the museum.

Establishing the ARoS Triennial The Garden – End of Times, Beginning of Times is part of the ARoS Vision Plan 2020, launched and headed by Erlend G. Høyersten.

The ARoS Triennial The Garden – End of Times, Beginning of Times is one of the highlights in the Aarhus European Capital of Culture 2017 events, supported by Aarhus 2017 Rethink.
