Gilbert & George - THE MAJOR EXHIBITION will be their first significant exhibition held in the Nordic countries during the last two decades and showcases pictures exhibited for the first time in Finland.
Playwright, theatre and film director, screenwriter Paavo Westerberg was given carte blanche to curate an exhibition from works in the Bäcksbacka Art Collection at HAM. He approached the task as a storyteller, from the emotional perspective.
Ulla Jokisalo’s (b. 1955) exhibition Imaginations of Freedom explores how the artist endeavours to practise artistic freedom.
The works of Tove Jansson (1914–2001) are amongs the most cherished pieces in the HAM collection. HAM has dedicated some of its galleries to an exhibition of the artist's life and works.
Visible Invisibility invites visitors to dive into vivid and hidden forms of urban youth subcultures in Saint Petersburg and in Helsinki. The exhibition foregrounds the creative struggles for the right to belong to urban space and asks who has the right to the space. The exhibition asks the question: on which terms is it possible for art and research to depict subcultural meanings?
In this video installation “There was no thought, but a thrive for the visibility of something yet to be named” the artist approaches her every day through a series of chosen images which refer to gestures for unspoken intentions.
