Nordic cosmopolitans – ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum, Denmark

  • Date:

Professor David Jackson from the School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies is taking part in the Nordic Cosmopolitans workshop at ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum, Denmark, on 8th January 2014.

The workshop brings together academics and curators to discuss the most recent scholarship on art and internationalism in Scandinavia at the ‘long fin de siecle’ (ca. 1870-1920).

Topics range from the Pre-Raphaelite influence on Danish painting, to neo-classicism in Finnish architecture, Scandinavian artists in Paris and Scandinavian colonial visual culture. Professor David Jackson (alongside Jan Cox of the University of Leeds and Hannah Heilmann, Copenhagen) will present an inside perspective on curating 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, NZ), in collaboration with the Internationalism and Cultural Exchange research network (ICE).
