Nordic Cosmopolitans: art and internationalism in Scandinavia and Finland at the ‘long fin-de-siècle’
This workshop brings together academics and curators to discuss the most recent scholarship on art and internationalism in Scandinavia and Finland at the ‘long fin-de-siècle’ (c.1870-1920). It is taking place at the ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum, Denmark, on 8 January 2014 from 9:00am.
Topics range from the Pre-Raphaelite influence on Danish painting, to neo-classicism in Finnish architecture, Scandinavian artists in Paris, Scandinavian colonial visual culture, and an inside perspective on the recent exhibition Nordic Art: The Modern Breakthrough (Munich and Groninger, 2012-13). The workshop is convened by Ingeborg Bugge (Aarhus University, Denmark) and Rosie Ibbotson (University of Canterbury, Aotearoa New Zealand), in collaboration with the Internationalism and Cultural Exchange research network (ICE).
