Nordic Changes: Works by Diane Burko
On view at the American Swedish Historical Museum through January 5, 2020

ASHM is delighted to present Nordic Changes, an exhibition of paintings and photographs by the internationally-renowned artist, Diane Burko and guest curated by Dr. Kirsten Jensen. Burko’s pieces in the exhibition are visual investigations, revealing the dramatic ways in which the Arctic is being transformed due to the effects of climate change.

Nordic Changes offers visitors a capsule survey of Burko’s many expeditions to the Arctic. The fourteen works highlight the Arctic’s geological phenomena and its austere natural beauty, while at the same time forcing us to pause and reflect upon how quickly they are disappearing before our eyes.
