‘Nordic Impressions: Contemporary Art from Åland, Denmark, Finland, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden' reflects the rich diversity and global character of Nordic art. Displaying artworks in a wide variety of media, the exhibition is united by the historic threads that unite Nordic art and culture. Works on show feature themes such as the coalescence of nature and folklore, women's rights and social liberalism; as well as more current subjects such as climate change, sustainability, and immigration.
With works drawn from a wider survey exhibition held at Philips in 2018, this presentation is thanks to the Nordic Cultural Initiative, a collaboration between the Phillips Collection and the Washington, D.C.-based embassies of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden, launched in 2014 to promote the wealth of Nordic artistic talent. The exhibition is accompanied by a programme which includes art workshops for children, a book launch with artist, Tanya Toft Ag, and an artist panel event during Armory week.
