    The Weather Diaries at the American Swedish Institute probes the roots of West Nordic fashion and explores the inescapable impact of nature and weather in developing a centuries deep cultural identity in Iceland, Greenland, and the Faroe Islands. The Weather Diaries features the mesmerizing creations of the Swedish-based artistic duo Cooper & Gorfer, who take part, along with Icelandic artist/designer STEiNUNN, during the Friday, March 24, First Look—The Weather Diaries Preview Party. The exhibition is on view Saturday, March 25 to Sunday, July 2, 2017.

    The Weather Diaries continues ASI’s 2017 suite of programming inspired by Migration, Identity and Belonging and reflects the organization’s founding by Swedish immigrants and mission to be a gathering place for all people to share experiences around culture, migration, the environment, and the arts.
