Nordic Impressions - Art Spanning from 1821–2018

The exhibition celebrates the incredible artistic diversity of Nordic art, from idealized paintings of the distinctive Nordic light and untouched landscape to melancholic portraits in quiet interiors and mesmerizing video works that explore the human condition.

Nordic Art - Mystique and Culture

The Nordic art on display at Phillips retains a certain mystique but also focuses on themes that have held a special place in Nordic culture for centuries: light and darkness, inner life and exterior space, the coalescence of nature and folklore, and women’s rights and social liberalism.

Post-Exhibition Food & Drinks

After exploring the different art exhibits on display we will head out to a nearby pub for some food, drinks and conversations on arts and travel.
