In partnership with the Embassy of Denmark, the Corcoran Collage of Art + Design presents the fourth Creative Christmas exhibition, gather.HYGGE, on view at the Danish Ambassador’s Residence and open for a FREE, one-day-only Open House on December 6 from 3 to 5 p.m. gather.HYGGE is an exhibition designed for the Royal Danish Embassy’s annual Creative Christmas celebration by four graduate students from the Corcoran. MA Interior Design candidates Audrey Cotton and Jacqueline Hiersteiner, along with MA Exhibition Design students Maizie Clarke and Alexandra Hunger, will translate the Danish cultural concept hygge into an installation for all to understand and experience. Hygge has no real translation but refers to feelings of joy, warmth, and togetherness.
