In addition to the museum's mission to exhibit contemporary art, ARKEN is also committed to placing contemporary art in an art-historical framework and approaching the classical material from a new perspective.
The museum shows exhibitions with the greatest, Modernist artists alongside exhibitions of contemporary art - from the new, young talents to household names. The exhibitions are of international standard and are often subject to research. ARKEN collaborates on a continuous basis with a number of foreign museums.
