Art, Architecture and Society in Denmark and Norway: From the Golden Age to Nordic Modern Rosamund Bartlett Friday 01 November 2019

Venue: The Southampton City Art Gallery and Lecture Theatre

Time:  10.30am – 3:30pm (approx) 

Cost:  £125 for 5 days or £25 per day (coffee included)

Denmark and Norway boast an astonishing combination of ancient heritage with stunning contemporary design, including provocative new state-funded opera houses in the capital cities of Copenhagen and Oslo, and imaginative deconstructions of classic porcelain tableware.  Yet despite their shared history and strong linguistic ties, Denmark and Norway each have their own distinct cultural identity. This day of lectures will explore the art and architecture of both countries, and discuss how they reflect the democratic, under-stated qualities that have long been evident in Scandinavian society at large. We will range from the artists of the Danish “Golden Age” such as Eckersberg and Købke, and the modern designs of Jacobsen and Wegner, to the landscape paintings, reindeer pavilions and other radical architectural projects inspired by Norway’s dramatic, rugged and beautiful scenery.
