Background

The first New Nordic Art exhibitions were successfully launched in 2010 at Voksenåsen Gallery in Oslo and at Berns Salonger in Stockholm. These exhibitions featured a diverse range recognized art from multicultural artists that live in the Nordic region.

The artists selected reside in Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland. Their country of origin includes Costa Rica, China, Israel, France, Palestine, Haiti/Switzerland, USA, UK, Lebanon, and Japan. The exhibitions were complemented by high quality catalogs that told the story of the artists.

 

Concept

New Nordic Art is aiming to become a biannual art exhibition in the Nordic region.

Designed and implemented by the Leadership Foundation, the exhibition will feature the work of individuals who have moved to the Nordic region from other countries. Through their paintings, photographs and sculptures, it will present a new and emerging Nordic identity.

 

Goal

To be an actor in the multicultural debate, through creating an art grant program and exhibition, which will tour the Nordic countries. The aim of New Nordic Art is to promote the artist’s work to a large, prominent public and to contribute to an increased understanding and awareness of the different cultural perspectives within the artistic world. New Nordic Art will also commission a piece of art that will reflect the multicultural reality in the Nordic region through the eyes of the artist.
