NEW YORK, NY.- Streaming Museum presents Nordic Outbreak, an exhibition of over 30 moving image artworks by established and emerging contemporary Nordic artists curated for public space. Organized by curators Tanya Toft and Nina Colosi the exhibition program launches in New York City and will travel throughout the Nordic region and internationally. 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.

Nordic Outbreak opened on March 1st with a new version of Björk’s Mutual Core video by Andrew Thomas Huang, which is on view nightly through March 31st during Times Square’s “Midnight Moment”, a collaboration between Times Square Advertising Coalition and Times Square Arts. The exhibition of this work, simultaneously displayed across 15 of the largest screens in Times Square, is a prelude to a series of events and exhibitions that will take place March 31st to April 6th.

Nordic Outbreak reflects an open exhibition structure for the museum without walls and contemporary ways of engaging with cities through moving image.

A symposium and exhibition at Scandinavia House with Nordic artists, theorists, and curators will take place on April 6. The symposium highlights contemporary dynamics in aesthetics and form in moving image from the Nordic art scene and new modes and impact of exhibition in public space.

Among other events are screenings at Dag Hammarskjold Plaza and the Manhattan Bridge Archway, a lecture at NYU Tisch School of the Arts on the history of Nordic moving image, and an evening event in the Sky Room at the New Museum.

Speaking about the focus of Nordic Outbreak, Danish curator Tanya Toft said, “the artworks touch upon contemporary issues that are confronting the underpinnings of society in the Nordic region – but which also reflect international realities and conditions in the digital age. The exhibition brings new light on the Nordic as a diverse aesthetic concept and reveals an amazing experimental energy.”

Over 30 contemporary Nordic artists are included in the exhibition: Eija-Liisa Ahtila, J Tobias Anderson, Björk, Ken Are Bongo, Jeannette Ehlers, Efterklang, Jette Ellgaard, Jessica Faiss, Marit Følstad, Søren Thilo Funder, Sigurdur Gudjonsson, Styrmir Örn Gudmundsson, Eva-Mari Haikala, Iselin Linstad Hauge, Kaia Hugin, Hanne Ivars, Mogens Jacobsen, Vibeke Jensen, Jesper Just, Hannu Karjalainen, Antti Laitinen, Dan Lestander, Una Lorenzen, Pernille With Madsen, Dodda Maggy, Eva Olsson, QNQ/AUJIK, Miia Rinne, Egill Saebjornsson, Magnus Sigurdarson, Birgitte Sigmundstad and Superflex.

Nordic Outbreak is produced in collaboration with Nordic curators Daniela Arriado, Birta Gudjonsdottir, Kati Kivinen, and Jacob Lillemose.
