With a widespread reputation for their mature appreciation of the arts, their innovative design output harking back to the early twentieth century, and their emerging fashion houses, the Nordic countries have a strong tradition of iconic style and remain at the cutting-edge of creativity. Nordic Contemporary presents profiles of nearly 150 of the most important Danish, Finnish, Icelandic, Norwegian and Swedish figures and institutions active on the art scene today, including artists, curators, galleries, critics and collectors. Extensively illustrated and based on the most up-to-date research, Nordic Contemporary provides a unique, invaluable survey of current trends and key players. It will be a must read for anyone interested in expanding their knowledge of the contemporary culture of the Nordic countries.
This survey of major trends and figures in contemporary Nordic visual arts will appeal to serious students and arts workers. . . . The main portion of the book is organized like an encyclopedia, with entries on individual artists and institutions. Excellent color photographs accompany each entry.
