Where to meet art, culture and creativity

In the Studio
Nordic Notes

We believe there no better way to get acquainted with contemporary art practice and develop a feel for all the great art out there than to be talking to the artists themselves. Artists have a great capacity to see the world in new ways and as such can be a source of inspiration to us all. 

In our In the Studio stories, we met important emerging and internationally established artists to listen to them explain their artistic concern and way of working in their own words. We want to know whether they have a specific agenda how their work should be perceived, and what makes them come to the studio every day. Last but not least, we also want to get to know them better as people.

“There is great potential to raise the collective profile of the whole Nordic region as a destination for art and culture.”

Collector Stories
Nordic Notes

We believe that you don't need a Donald Judd or Picasso on your walls to call yourself a collector. Everyone with a love for art, a keen interest and a discerning eye can start a collection, irrespective of the size of her or his wallet. 

In our Collector Stories we meet both young and seasoned collectors in the privacy of their homes, listening to their personal story why and how they chose to live with art, where they find art that excites them – and what advice they can give to people who are just discovering the passion for art.

Edition
Edition of 25

On a regular basis we enter into collaborations with emerging and established artists internationally, typically preceded by a studio visit for our magazine's editorial.

We believe that editions are a great and affordable way of developing a closer relationship with contemporary art and to potentially start a collection of one's own. 

In order to provide more value to our customers we focus in our editions program on multiples in particularly low numbers and work series of unique pieces or edition numbers with an individual character.
