Voyage to the Virtual

The first Scandinavia House exhibition dedicated to digital, moving image, and light-based Nordic art, Voyage to the Virtual takes the metaphor of “the voyage” – a concept deeply rooted in Nordic identity – as a starting point for an exploration into the ways contemporary artists are expanding on the human perceptual experience. Combining video, animation, sculpture, light, and interactive media, the exhibition invites viewers on expeditions to the far north, travels through time and space, and perceptual journeys into the realm of the virtual.

Voyage to the Virtual is curated by Tanya Toft, Curator and Ph.D. Fellow at Copenhagen University, and organized by The American-Scandinavian Foundation (ASF). The exhibition has been made possible by generous grants from Ny Carlsbergfondet, the Nordic Culture Point, the Nordic Culture Fund, and Carl Gustaf Ehrnrooth. We gratefully acknowledge additional support from the Consulate General of Denmark in New York, the Royal Norwegian Consulate General in New York, the SWEA New Jersey Chapter, the Office for Contemporary Art Norway (OCA), the Consulate General of Finland in New York, FRAME Visual Art Finland, and the Consulate General of Sweden in New York.
