Opening of Afgang 2024: Passage

Free entry

With the title Passage, Kunsthal Aarhus and Det Jyske Kunstakademi celebrate a 20-year-long collaboration with a focus on newly graduated artists.

This year marks the anniversary of the traditional collaboration between Kunsthal Aarhus and Det Jyske Kunstakademi. The graduation exhibition, Passage, presents works by graduating students Benjamin Asger Krog Møller (b. 1994) and Naja Zethner (b. 1998) in two galleries. This is the twentieth time that the graduation exhibition is presented at Kunsthal Aarhus.

About Afgang 2024

This year's graduation exhibition is titled Passage and refers to the transitions we experience throughout our lives. The exhibition dwells on both large and small transitions, reflecting on their significance and asking the question: What happens when we move from one stage to another? The exhibition also invites the audience to be open to a process of change where you look at art and the circumstances surrounding its creation.

The graduating students in 2024 are Naja Zethner and Benjamin Asger Krog Møller. The two artists work with very different expressions and formats. Naja Zethner works with painting and text through which she explores sensory impressions, structure and image formation. Benjamin Asger Krog Møller, who is also an idea historian, works with installation, text and collaborative work. In Passage, which consists of a series of paintings by Zethner and an installation by Krog Møller, their works fill galleries 2 and 3 on the ground floor of Kunsthal Aarhus.

The exhibition is curated by Karen Vestergaard Andersen.
