Modern art from the 20th century and the very latest contemporary art now fills the exhibition rooms of SMK’s white building, offering a wide-ranging display of the main movements within Danish art. The exhibition includes rooms focusing on major individual figures, on collective movements, and on important works and trends from the international art scene of the period.
The long walkway extending through the building acts like a kind of timeline. As you move through the large exhibition rooms facing the Østre Anlæg park you also move chronologically through a sequence of art from the early 20th century to the present day.
The large exhibition rooms offer visitors the chance to orient themselves and get an overview of art from the early 20th century to the present day. Each room presents a specific period. The smaller rooms on the other side of the corridor offer visitors the opportunity to focus on tendencies, groupings, artists or particular issues.
