IMOGEN CUNNINGHAM

7 June – 15 Sep 2019

American Imogen Cunningham (1883–1976) is one of the iconic names of modern photography. She was best known for her portraits and tightly framed studies of plants and nudes. Cunningham’s visually striking black-and-white photographs explore their subject close up, revealing to us the beauty that hides even in seemingly humble objects. In addition to photos of natural subjects and of nudes, the exhibition includes self-portraits from different periods and also expressive photographs of Cunningham taken by her colleagues. The exhibition is produced in collaboration with the Imogen Cunningham Trust, Seattle. Read further

EMIL NOLDE
4 Oct 2019 – 5 Jan 2020

German artist Emil Nolde (1867–1956) was a leading modernist of his day. He began his career in art in the 1890s as a neo-romantic, but soon assimilated influences from French impressionism and neo-impressionism. Around 1909, Nolde began painting in a new, expressive style that became his trademark, intense colours combining with a simplified, at times almost caricature-like idiom. The intensely emotional and morbidly beautiful style awakened heated discussion at the time. When the National Socialists came to power, Nolde’s art was condemned as un-German, and in 1941 he was forbidden to paint. He did not heed the injunction, however, and continued to work in secret. Nolde was a keen observer and painter of people and nature, particularly of the sea, and he also loved flowers. All his favourite subjects are presented in the exhibition. The exhibition was produced in collaboration with the Nolde Stiftung in Seebüll.

JENNI YPPÄRILÄ: LONG LIVE
7 June – 15 September 2019

Jenni Yppärilä creates three-dimensional paintings of imaginary and partly real buildings in Turku. Instead of direct likenesses, however, the pictures show the houses with the addition of graffiti, tags, alien vegetation or rhizomes. Thematically the paintings explore the dynamics between change and permanence, on the one hand, and the individual, society and nature, on the other. Read further

7 June – 15 September 2019

Anssi Kasitonni is a versatile artist whose short films caricature popular culture and life itself. Shot on his Sahalahti estate, the films are home-spun in style yet the ideas in them are all the more epic in scale. The exhibition at Turku Art Museum presents Kasitonni’s two latest films Saladdin Castique (2018) and Sakke (2018). Read further
