THE ICONIC AND THE EVERYDAY: Creative Finland in America

Creative Finland – Finnish architecture, design and industry – has been a strong presence in American culture, since at least the mid-twentieth century. The contemporary design relationships between the two nations are equally notable and worthy of illustration in the Embassy of Finland, Washington, D.C., on the occasion of the centenary celebration of Finland’s independence.

THE ICONIC AND THE EVERYDAY exhibition proposes an explicit condensed assertion of the contemporary presence and influence of Finnish design, industry and identity in the United States. Two exhibition displays are interwoven, each of which can be seen simultaneously as both “iconic” and “everyday” in character.

The exhibition ambition is to produce a composite understanding of the presence and strength of Finnish architecture, design and industry in the lives of everyday Americans – and to benefit both nations’ mutual appreciation and understanding.

Free admission.
