TRUE NORDIC: HOW SCANDINAVIA INFLUENCED DESIGN IN CANADA, AT THE GARDINER, October 13, 2016 to January 8, 2017

true-nordic-gardinerTRUE NORDIC: HOW SCANDINAVIA INFLUENCED DESIGN IN CANADA has some familiar faces: the Deichmanns the Lorenzens, Ruth Gowdy McKinley, Luke Lindoe and Jean Cartier, among others. The exhibition is a counterpoint to the more familiar Leach-Hamada tradition.

Produced by the Gardiner Museum and curated by Rachel Gotlieb and Michael Prokopow this major exhibition explores more than seven decades of Nordic aesthetic influence in Canadian design. Examining the ways that modern Scandinavian design was introduced to Canada and how its aesthetic principles and material forms were adopted and adapted by Canadian artisans and designers, True Nordic will present a comprehensive, critical survey of Canadian furniture, ceramics, textiles, metalwork, and glassware.

A must see exhibition!
