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, and the Nordic Culture Fund. We gratefully acknowledge additional support from The Consulate General of Denmark in New York, the SWEA New Jersey Chapter, and the Office for Contemporary Art Norway (OCA).
