The underground world is enigmatic, exciting, alluring, mysterious and full of natural resources that we humans exploit. This extensive group exhibition features 101 works by 62 artists.


The Subterranean group exhibition uses four themes to explore how artists through the centuries have depicted the worlds beneath our feet. This extensive exhibition features 101 works by 62 artists.

The works take us into the caves and cavities of the earth's crust, the mythological realms of death, the rabbit holes of literature and traces of the exploitation of the earth beneath our feet.

The historical and contemporary works in the exhibition form a complex, multi-faceted image of underground realities. Subterranean includes paintings, sculptures, photography, installations and video art. The oldest work in the show is from 17th century, while the newest ones were completed just for this exhibition.
