The Nuuk Art Museum showcases a diverse collection of approximately 250 artworks, including paintings, watercolors, photographs, drawings, graphics, and sculptures made from materials like bone, tooth, wood, and soapstone. Encompassing an area of around 600 square meters, the museum includes an extension dedicated to hosting temporary exhibitions.
Within its permanent collection, the museum boasts an extensive array of historic artworks created by European artists who resided in Greenland for varying durations. Noteworthy figures among these artists are Christine Deichmann (1869-1945), J.E.C. Rasmussen (1841-1893), Harald Moltke (1871-1960), and Emanuel A. Petersen (1894-1948). Additionally, the collection features contemporary pieces by Greenlandic artists such as Simon Kristoffersen (1933-1990), Miki Jacobsen (born 1965), Buuti Pedersen (born 1955), Hans Lynge (1906-1988), Anne-Birthe Hove (1951-2012), and Pia Arke (1958-2007).
The arrangement of the collection is designed to explore how Greenland has been portrayed by external artists as well as how local artists perceive their homeland. This dynamic approach offers an opportunity to delve into the interplay between traditional and modern artistic expressions.
Originally a generous contribution from Svend Junge and Helene Junge Pedersen, the Nuuk Art Museum, was bestowed as a gift to the municipallity. The museum's inauguration took place in 2005, and it is housed within the former Adventist Church at Kissarneqqortuunnguaq 5, a short stroll from Nuuk's city center. Managed by Kommuneqarfik Sermersooq (previously Nuuk Municipality), the museum remains a testament to the Junge family's donation.
In recent years, the museum has worked on various projects that allow you to experience the highlights of the museum's permanent collection via an audio guide and to discover the urban space with the museum's artwalk. In addition, educational material has been developed for several grade levels and high schools.
On recurring events and special anniversaries such as Culture Night, International Museum Day, openings and National Day, the museum organizes various events where everyone is welcome.
