The commissioners of the art exhibitions in the Nordic Pavilion in Venice – Finland, Norway and Sweden – have agreed on the guidelines for their collaboration on the next three biennials. The art in the Nordic Pavilion will be presented as a joint project, where the three countries are represented on equal terms. As before, the countries will take turns as principal commissioner and manager of activities at the Nordic Pavilion as follows:

2017: Moderna Museet, Sweden
2019: Frame Visual Art Finland, Finland
2021: Office for Contemporary Art (OCA), Norway

Moderna Museet has thus appointed Mats Stjernstedt to curate the Nordic Pavilion in 2017. Stjernstedt is the artistic director of Kunstnernes Hus in Oslo since 2011.
He has curated numerous exhibitions internationally over the years.
