Every three years, Aros will invite you to a huge art festival at the museum, in the urban area and along the coast. The first time will be this year, where the theme will be a man's relationship to nature.

Aros is known for its iconic rainbow on the roof. But when this Summer Aarhus' guests will

raise their eyes to see the light playing in the range of colors, they will find that the rainbow is wrapped in a circular fog.

The very local fog is just one of the hundreds of works chosen for the first Aros triennial. It will be a permanent recurring event, which will take place at the museum, in the urban area and along the coast every third year.

On the occasion of the Cultural Capital Year's request to reconsider, the very first edition of the triennial focuses on the human coexistence with nature. The Garden - End of Times, the Beginning of Times, as the title is, shows through the art how people's view of nature has changed.

The differences are not only expressions of the various artists' aesthetic taste, but also reflect the prevailing worldviews.

It is divided into three catrgories:

First one, The Past, is in full swing and can be seen until September 10th at the museum, while the two following, The Present and The Future, can be seen in the urban area and along the coast respectively. They seem to wait a while as they can be best seen in summer weather. You must take the road past Aarhus in June and July if you want to experience them.

Erlend Høyersten, calls the triennial the most ambitious exhibition in the museum's history.

- We are showing 400 years of art history, which, among other things, will help us clarify where we come from, so that we get a better understanding of where we are headed, says the museum director.

The Past will contain works by Claude Lorrain, John Constable, Caspar David Friedrich, Edvard Munch, Paul Gauguin, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Maurice de Vlaminck, Emil Nolde, Max Liebermann, Paul Klee, Max Ernst, Jean Arp, René Magritte, Giorgio de Chirico, Robert Smithson, Joan Jonas, Richard Long, Diana Thater, Meg Webster, Olafur Eliasson, Damián Ortega, Darren Almond, Pamela Rosenkranz and many more.

Avisen Danmark gave the exhibition's part 1, The Past, five of six stars in a review earlier in April.
