The Moore Space

Peer In Peer Out / Contemporary Scandinavian Art From May 12th through Jul 14th, 2007Peer In Peer Out / Contemporary Scandinavian Art is currently on view at The Moore Space located in the Miami Design District. This video program is coordinated in conjunction with the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art and includes the following artists: Knut Asdam, Jesper Just, Andrea Lange, Lars Lauman and Pia Lindman. Intertwining themes of contemporary global politics and the ancient politics of interpersonal relationships, this video program is part of a larger exhibition taking place simultaneously at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, sampling contemporary visual art in Scandinavia today – presenting work by artists from a vast geographic region with diverse yet related histories. The term “Scandinavia” (applied to the Nordic nations of this European peninsular region) came into general usage during the 18th century. The subtitle for the exhibition – Peer In, Peer Out – is taken from a sculpture by American artist Robert Smithson, a pioneer who forged connections between timeless natural phenomena and the indoor space of the art gallery. The artists chosen for this exhibition similarly balance an interior state of being with a global sense of belonging in our linked world. For more information, please call: 305.438.1163
