E-Flux Press release


Streaming Museum is pleased to present Nordic Outbreak, an exhibition of over 30 moving image artworks by established and emerging contemporary Nordic artists curated for public space. Organized by curators Nina Colosi and Tanya Toft, the exhibition program launches in New York City and will travel throughout the Nordic region and internationally. Nordic Outbreak reflects an open exhibition structure for the museum without walls and contemporary ways of engaging with cities through moving image. It will be viewed as large projections and on screens in public spaces, on its website, and at partnering arts, cultural and architectural centers.

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."
