Description

This landmark exhibition explores more than seven decades of Nordic aesthetic influence in Canadian design. True Nordic was produced by the Gardiner Museum and guest curators Rachel Gotlieb and Michael Prokopow. This exhibition examines 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 presents a comprehensive, critical survey of Canadian furniture, ceramics, textiles, metalwork, and glassware. The objects in this exhibition range from the popular to the rarefied and demonstrate how Scandinavian design shaped craft and mass production in Canada after 1920. Discover two significant New Brunswick connections in this exhibition.
