Events at Scandinavia House in New York: Winter 2019 Schedule


This winter, Scandinavia House brings a new array of Nordic art, film, music, literary, and kid-friendly events programming to New York! Our upcoming events include three new film series: "Nordic Oscar Contenders," with screenings of this year's Nordic films chosen for the 2018 Best Foreign Language Film; "Lumberjacks and Logrollers: Icons of Finnish Cinema," a survey of Finnish lumberjack films created from the 1920s onward that showcases Finland's rich history in the logging tradition; and "Across Borders," with films exploring different interpretations of the understanding of selfhood and belonging.

Our fall exhibition Light Lines: The Art of Jan Groth, Inger Johanne Grytting, and Thomas Pihl closes on Saturday, January 12, with a special artist-led gallery tour with Inger and Thomas. And from February 23 through June 8, 2019, the exhibition Nordic Impressions: Contemporary Art From Åland, Denmark, Finland, Greenland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden brings together a wide array of artistic expressions across all mediums that reflect the rich diversity and global character of Nordic art, drawn from a larger survey at the Phillips Collection in the fall of 2018 as part of a multi-year Nordic Cultural Initiative.

Concerts include Swedish pianist Per Tengstrand's ongoing "Music On Park Avenue" series with performances of Beethoven's concerti with Princeton chamber music group Opus 21, as well as "Keyboard Conversations" with with Jeffrey Siegel. Scandinavian-American ensemble Bridge of Song also performs, as well as ASF Fellow Geirþrúður Anna Guðmundsdóttir. Book talks and panels include "Digital Dynamics in Nordic Contemporary Art," a book talk, panel, and performance with Tanya Toft Ag and guest artists; and ongoing art workshops continue for kids, as well as a special Fastelavn holiday workshop.

Full Concerts at Scandinavia House

Our ongoing children’s programming continues at Scandinavia House with regular activities for small kids in the Heimbold Family Children’s Playing and Learning Center, as well as workshops and events for older kids on Wednesday afternoons and weekends! Through events that combine creativity with development, the American-Scandinavian Foundation’s educational activities continue to encourage its core philosophy: That play is learning, and learning is play.

These ongoing activities are accompanied by Saturday Arts & Storytelling workshops for all children ages 5 and older. On one Saturday each month, one of New York’s storytellers from the Hans Christian Andersen Storytelling Center presents fairy tales, folk stories, and fantastic adventures from Scandinavia and the far north. On other Saturdays, Scandinavia House continues our new Saturday Arts Workshops guided by arts educators. And on March 2, kids can join us for a celebration of the Scandinavia holiday Fastelavn, known as the "Nordic Halloween," in which kids go from door to door singing songs for candy.
