For the duration of Nordic Cool 2013, the Terrace Gallery will become the Cool Club, an extension of the Nordic Design Illustrated exhibition. The Cool Club will feature the iconic Arne Jacobsen Series 7 chairs, on loan from Fritz Hansen, the Embassy of Denmark in Washington, D.C., and Furniture from Scandinavia, and a new curtain made from fabric by Marimekko.
Midaircondo, composed of Lisa Nordström and Lisen Rylander Löve, was founded in Gothenburg, Sweden, in 2002 and took the Swedish electronica music scene by storm. Joined at the Kennedy Center by Danish percussionist Michala Østergaard-Nielsen, the group explores avant-garde sound art, electronica, jazz, and melancholic pop--and is known for its visual and improvised concerts using an imaginative mix of acoustic instruments, voice, electronics, and video.
