Play a game of table tennis, see a red-hot globe, allow yourself to be cleansed by an all-enveloping interactive waterfall. ARoS‘ first temporary exhibition in 2019 shows how it is possible, using art as a facilitator and catalyst, to highlight the biggest and most complex issues facing our time. The exhibition takes as its point of departure the UN’s seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and invites the audience to reflect on the world of tomorrow.

ARoS considers it of cardinal importance to show this exhibition at a time when new technologies and inventions emerge on a daily basis and the world is facing a series of challenges and problems. “We hope that visitors will use this exhibition to dream, discuss, and discover possibilities for a better future” said Erlend G. Høyersten, director of ARoS.

Tomorrow is the Question is created in a curatorial collaboration between ARoS and Luise Faurschou and has been underway for three years. Luise Faurschou is director of the organisation ART 2030 whose goal is to link art to the SDGs. ART 2030 has been dubbed the most ambitious art project of all time by the international art platform artnet. “Art can be part of the discussion and visualisation of the SDGs. Tomorrow is the Question is an exhibition of outstanding works which can facilitate insight, instil hope, and inspire us to act in the conviction that together we have every opportunity to create a better future” said Luise Faurschou.

The exhibition presents works by fifteen international contemporary artists. A common denominator of these works is their capability, in a particularly powerful, visual, and sensuous way, to communicate the fact that we live in times of upheaval. The participating artists collectively focus on the huge challenges currently facing us in a form that gives rise to contemplation about the state of the world, calling for dialogue, innovative thinking, and collective action. Collectively, the artists represent individual voices, consistently succeeding in challenging our perception of reality and habitual thinking.

“Art can train and enhance our imagination. With Tomorrow is the Question, we use art to challenge habitual thinking and maybe, who knows, inspire new solutions to safeguard a sustainable future” declared Erlend G. Høyersten.
