      Cutting Edges: Nordic Concrete Art from the Erling Neby Collection

      Opening October 12 at Scandinavia House, "Cutting Edges: Nordic Concrete Art from the Erling Neby Collection" presents concrete art from the Nordic countries in a collection never before seen in the U.S. Curated by Karin Hellandsjø, Director Emeritus of the Henie Onstad Art Centre, this exhibition presents over 30 key works from major artists in painting, drawing, and sculpture.

      A practice that was developed before and after World War II, and devised to avoid ambiguity in the word ‘abstract,’ concrete art is characterized by combinations of simple geometric elements to create autonomous visual realities. Much like their contemporaries in the U.S. and Paris, Nordic artists became interested in creating concrete and non-objective artworks both social and universal, using pure form and color based on mathematical principles.

      "Cutting Edges" will open on October 12, 2019. It will be accompanied by a range of programming, including related art workshops for children. Related events will be updated throughout the fall; check back here for more details.

      On view through February 15, 2020.
