Curator Dr. Klaus Ottmann and artists Anneè Olofsson and Marthe Thorshaug discuss the show "Nordic Impressions: Contemporary Art from Åland, Denmark, Finland, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden."

About

Led by the exhibition’s curator Dr. Klaus Ottmann, a panel on Nordic Impressions: Contemporary Art from Åland, Denmark, Finland, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden discusses the wide array of artistic expressions currently on view at Scandinavia House. Marthe Thorshaug (Norway, The Legend of Ygg, 2014) and Anneè Olofsson (Sweden, Cold, 1999) will be present to discuss their unique expressions in the exhibition, as well as the themes that hold a special place across Nordic culture: both historic themes such as light and darkness, the coalescence of nature and folklore, women’s rights and social liberalism; and more current subjects such as climate change, sustainability, and immigration.

Presented in partnership with the Armory Show’s 2018 VIP Programs, the panel will follow a guided tour of the exhibition by Dr. Klaus Ottmann for Armory VIP Members only.
