North Atlantic House

North Atlantic House is an art center where you can encounter North Atlantic art and culture. Here, people and artists from Iceland, Greenland, The Faroe Islands, Denmark - and the rest of the world - meet and inspire one another.

A visit to North Atlantic House is guaranteed to expand your horizon and stir your senses. You will find two exhibition rooms in which you can get a taste of North Atlantic culture through changing exhibitions, that shed light on the art scene of each of the three countries, in turn.

Furthermore, on specific days and evenings, you can experience everything from concerts, movies, presentations and events.

Explore North Atlantic art and culture in the beautiful warehouse from the 1700s. Built in 1767, North Atlantic House was the port for maritime traffic between Denmark and the North Atlantic for over 200 years.

Special Exhibitions: The Green Land

The Green Land is a spectacular artistic image and sound narrative created by visual artist and filmmaker Inuk Silis Høegh in collaboration with sound artist Jacob Kirkegaard.

It is the outcome of a multi-annual land art project, set in Nuuk and around Maniitsoq. Inuk Silis Høegh was driven by the wish to examine his own – and more generally modern man’s – relationship to nature. The Greenlandic landscape may appear eternal and pristine, but it is also transforming due to climate change and human intervention. The Green Land opens for contemplation of the Arctic in a global context. At once inscrutable, beautiful and haunting.

Authentic surroundings

These days, other ports serve the North Atlantic market, and the historic warehouse is now a thriving cultural centre, dedicated to the art and culture of Denmark’s former North Atlantic colonies Greenland, the Faroe Islands, and Iceland.

North Atlantic artists are often inspired by the landscapes, light, and nature sounds of their region, which lends a fiercely visual, bodily, and musical quality to their art.

The rustic, maritime spirit of the old warehouse with its raw plank floors and exposed rafter ceilings offers a unique and beautiful contrast to the artworks on the display.

Nordic food

Visit the cultural centre to get your own first-hand impression of this intriguing harbour front area. The North Atlantic House is open all year round and offers a lovely café where you can enjoy a good glass of wine or a cup of coffee.

On the Nordatlantens Brygge Harbour Front you will find the Faroese and Greenlandic Representations, the Icelandic Embassy, and the culinary treasures of Restaurant Barr.
