North Atlantic House
by Morten Meldgaard

North Atlantic House in the heart of Copenhagen is now a reality. Iceland, Greenland, Faroe Islands and Denmark have together created a new centre for culture, research, business, and representation. The centre is housed in a 7000 square meter warehouse dating back to 1767 and situated right at the harbour front.

The house has been renovated with a conference centre, exhibit facilities, restaurant, information centre, and office space where among others the Greenland Representation, the Mission of the Faroes, and the Embassy of Iceland reside.

The North Atlantic House, Copenhagen, Denmark

North Atlantic House is run by a foundation and it is an independent cultural institution. One of the centre's main tasks is to establish and develop cultural, research and business contacts between the North Atlantic countries and the rest of the world.

It is therefore a great pleasure that 21 artists from Greenland, Faroe Islands, and Iceland now contribute to the opening of the house. Already three years ago, when the first steps were taken to establish North Atlantic House, three artists Vignir Jóhannsson, Buuti Pedersen and Astri Luihn started working with the idea of an opening exhibition that would highlight the best of modern West Nordic art of both established and young artists. The Foundation is grateful for their contribution, now that the exhibition is a reality.
