DESIRES GRANTED OR DENIED

25 Nov 2016 – 4 Nov 2018

During landscape painter Victor Westerholm’s term as the first director of Turku Art Museum 1891–1919, the collections of the museum came to comprise altogether 400 works of art acquired by purchase or as a donation. Many of these works have subsequently become undisputed classics of Finnish art. The collection exhibition presents highlights from the classics alongside unrealised dreams – works that for some reason never became part of the collection. Read further


RUT BRYK: THE MAGIC BOX
26 January – 13 May 2018

Rut Bryk (1916–1999) was a Finnish reformer of modern ceramic art whose early, small-scale works are colourful narratives followed by simplified yet sometimes monumental wholes that grow and take over the space. Although many of her works may appear abstract, Bryk never really abandoned the figurative style. Her works are also characterised by a powerful mood, intense sensitivity and an intricacy of detail. The exhibition is produced by EMMA – Espoo Museum of Modern Art. Read further

With a poetic logic, it also offers speedy remedies, such as an adhesive bandage that won’t stick, permanent change or ways to detect toxicity. Read further

Each video has its own philosophical idea attached to this theme. Read further
