Stories of Finnish Art

Fri  – Sat 

Ateneum Art Museum, Kaivokatu 2, Helsinki

The Ateneum Art Museum has the country’s oldest and largest art collection. The collections exhibition presents well-loved classics alongside seldom-exhibited works of art. It draws new parallels and highlights works that have not been on show for a long time.

Stories of Finnish Art illustrates the development of art in Finland from 1809 until the 1970s. At the exhibition, the story of Finnish art is juxtaposed with international developments in art and contemporary social events.

The works on display in the halls of modern art highlight the post-Second World War reconstruction period and the emergent media society. The exhibition will feature paintings, sculptures and prints by Finnish and foreign artists. The exhibition will also include Eino Ruutsalo’s experimental films and advertisements.

The letters, sketchbooks, postcards and photographs on display in the archive hall vividly illustrate the daily lives of the artists. The dense, salon exhibition style recalls the history of the building, going back more than a century.

Ateneum Art Museum, open 2.6.2020
