Wanås in Sweden is a place where contemporary art, history and nature meet. Since 1987 exhibitions have taken place in a unique setting in a remote corner of southern Sweden.

With site-specific art works by Swedish and American artists, as well as films, models, photos and sketches, the vision, the environment and the unique experience at Wanås in Sweden come alive in the exhibition Imagine Art in Nature at House of Sweden.
