As an internationally established forum for cultural education and exchange, NordArt has dedicated itself to the task of enhancing mutual understanding through the language of art. Year after year the exhibition redefines itself anew by setting new priorities.

NordArt ranks among the largest exhibitions of contemporary art in Europe. The vast aisles of the historic iron foundry serve as its stage with 22,000 square meters of floor space and adjacent 80,000 square meters large sculpture park. Interacting with the impressive scenery of the industrial architecture the art works develops a distinct atmosphere, taking the visitors on an incomparable journey around the world through art.

Chief Curator for NordArt 2017: Wolfgang Gramm

Opening ceremony: Saturday 10 June 2017

Opening times: till 8 October 2017, Tuesday to Sunday 11 am ­ 7 pm

No entry fee or participating fee.

  • NordArt-Prize: The NordArt-Prize worth 10.000 Euro is sponsored by Hans-Julius and Johanna Ahlmann (ACO Group) since 2010. Each year one artist is awarded with the aim to support the art and culture scene.
  • Public Choice Award: NordArt visitors can vote for their favourite artist. Three winners are invited to participate again in next year’s NordArt. Each award is worth 1.000 Euro.
  • NordArt-Symposium: Each year the exhibition is preceded by the international NordArt Symposium. Approximately ten artists are invited to attend the symposium and create large works (sculpture, installation, painting) for the current NordArt.
