In 2017, ARoS Aarhus Art Museum in Denmark presents the first triennial entitled THE GARDEN – End of Times; Beginning of Times. The exhibition extends 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 creates an art zone spanning more than four kilometres.
The triennial takes place over 2017 in three phases, with the main contemporary works The Present and The Future opening on June 3rd.
