Sweden at Nordic Outbreak
Nordic Outbreak, a touring exhibition of over 30 moving image artworks by established and emerging contemporary Nordic artists curated for public space, starts on March 31 and runs through April 6. Sweden is represented by video artists Eva Olsson, J Tobias Anderson, Jessica Faiss, QNQ/AUJIK, Dan Lestander, as well as curator and theorist Jonatan Habib Engqvist.
Nordic Outbreak will be viewed as large projections and on screens in public spaces, on its website, and at partnering arts, cultural and architectural centers. Following the New York City launch, Nordic Outbreak will travel throughout the Nordic region and Streaming Museum's international network of screens in public spaces.
On April 4, the Consulate General of Sweden will co-present a lecture on the history of Nordic moving images by curator Jonatan Habib Engqvist at NYU Tisch School of the Arts. Jonatan Habib Engqvist has previously worked at Södertörn University, as curator at Moderna Museet in Stockholm, and project manager at the Swedish Arts Grants Committee’s international exchange program for visual art.
Among the events are also a symposium at Scandinavia House with Nordic artists, theorists, and curators - highlighting contemporary dynamics in aesthetics and form in moving image from the Nordic art scene - as well as screenings at Dag Hammarskjold Plaza and the Manhattan Bridge Archway, and a dinner party and a multi-screen exhibition in the Sky Room at the New Museum.
