CATCH14 – Junior Biennale
March 1 – April 27 (Workshop from February 8 – 16)
For the third time ARoS organise the so-called Junior Biennale – CATCH14. The idea is to create a platform, at which 90 young people between the age of 12 and 18 are given the opportunity to work with art in a 9-day workshop, alongside established artists like Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen, Rose Eken, Andreas Schulenburg and Peter Skjalm. The Biennale ends March 1 with an opening at Vestgalleriet, and in true 'Art Factor' manner as the museum explains it, CATCH14 will award two prizes – a museum prize and an audience prize.

Wes Lang – The Studio
March 29 – September 7
The american artist Wes Lang (b. 1972) will, at the exhibition The Studio, move this studio from a big, factory hall in Los Angeles to ARoS. The gallery space will turn into a giant collage containing objects, drawings and paintings originally filling Lang's studio. Everything from paint stains, Playboy-magazines and drawings of skeletons will be found at the exhibition. Spectators will get an unique look into the artist's 'private space', where the art itself is being produced, questioning the myths of 'the studio'.

Ebbe Stub Wittrup: House of Cards, 2014, C-print

Ebbe Stub Wittrup – The Third Room
May 16 – September 14
Both old and new works, including video, sculptor and photography will be shown at Ebbe Stub Wittrup's biggest solo exhibition to date, The Third Room. For more than 10 years, the artist has worked with superstition, unexplainable phenomenons and mythical stories. With inspiration from among other things, psychology and theories of colours, Ebbe Stub Wittrup challenges our logic and rational view on the world. Heavy lightning and corridors of curtains will guide you to 'The Third Room', a place between reality and fiction, the conscious and the unconscious.

Jesper Just: Intercourses, 2013, videostill

Jesper Just – Intercourses
May 29 – October 26
The Danish contribution to the 55th Venice Biennale and internationally renowned Danish video artist, Jesper Just (b. 1974), will be given 1300 square meters of exhibition space to show his video works, often concerning human interactions and feelings, executed with technical precision. The exhibition aims to visualise how Just's imagery has developed and added new dimensions to the video-genre, this past decade.

Michael Kvium – Fools
October 4 – February 15
It became one of ARoS's biggest successes concerning number of visitors, when Michael Kvium held the exhibition Jaywalking Eyes in 2006. It is therefore a great excitement for the museum, to have the artist visit once again, for the painting-series Fools – around 200, 30 x 30 cm paintings with Kvium's recognisable faces, which he has been doing since the 1990's and still continue to create.

Hanne Nielsen & Birgit Johnsen – Inklusion / Ekslusion
October 11 – January 18
Nielsen & Johnsen have been working together since 1994, and a big part of their work concerns TV media and our interpretation of reality. Through video work installations, the duo investigates human behaviour and subjective relations to culture and historical concerns. The exhibition title addresses both new and retrospective works - in which the older draws upon gender conscious themes, the new relates to individual and personal problems versus universal and global issues.

Janet Cardiff & George Bures Miller
December 6 – April 26
Installations with tools such as found objects, music, narration and light effects, can be expected when canadian artist-couple Cardiff & Miller turn ARoS into a stylised amusement park. Artistically they work between art, music, movie and literature among other things, and create countless high culture references from both the past and present, while still appealing to emotion, body and fantasy.
