Creator’s Project: “Nordic Outbreak”: An Exhibit That Redefines The Aesthetic Of The Nordic Art

The nomads have gone digital. Working with the idea of artworks as files, capable of trekking across great digital plains and virtual seas, settling themselves in various formats on different platforms, more than 30 contemporary Nordic artists have come together to shine light “on the Nordic as a diverse aesthetic and existential concept in the digital age.”

An internationally touring exhibition, “Nordic Outbreak” presents art-enthusiasts and digital mavens alike with a look at multi-media and moving image arts exhibited and projected in public spaces around New York City and the world.

This experimental project is presented by Streaming Museum, a 21st century cultural venue based in New York City. With the mission to spread and share art and ideas through the internet and their ever expanding network of big screens in public squares worldwide, Streaming Museum serves as the perfect venue for the artists behind “Nordic Outbreak” to challenge the organic and minimal aesthetic for which Nordic art has been viewed under for years.
