The New Beauty

Group show with works by Elina Brotherus
Hämeenlinna Art Museum, Hämeenlinna
May 13 - October 17, 2021

The Norwegian Nicolai Tangen’s collection of Nordic modernism is the world’s largest in private ownership. Its main focus is on abstract art from after the Second World War, but the arc of the collection extends from the 1920s avantgarde to the 2000s.

THE NEW BEAUTY presents works by the collection’s Finnish artists, who come together here with their Nordic friends and contemporaries. Among the artists are classic figures such as Sam Vanni and Birger Carlstedt, but also many lesser-known names.

The most recent addition to the collection is Elina Brotherus’ photographic series Seabound (2018–2019), which she realized at the invitation of the AKO Kunststiftelse for The Tangen Collection. An excerpt of the project is now exhibited for the first time.
