The Aspen Art Museum is a non-collecting institution presenting important evolutions in international contemporary art, located in an historic power plant building.
The Museum exhibition focus is three-fold: 1) first-time US solo museum exhibitions by significant emerging contemporary artists from around the globe; 2) solo exhibitions by important or established contemporary artists that focus on new, unrecognized, or underappreciated aspects of their artistic output; and 3) group exhibitions curated to address prescient or topical contemporary cultural, social, or political subject matter.
