The Heino Art Foundation has one of Finland’s foremost collections of contemporary art. The foundation was established to promote art and safeguard the collection built over several decades by Raimo and Raini Heino and their son, the gallerist Rauli Heino.
The collection has 1416 works of art by 223 artists. They include paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs and moving images. The works date from the 1950s to the present. All the artworks in the collection have been selected by the Heinos themselves, based on their common preferences and passion for art.
From Heino with Love offers the first glimpse of the foundation’s extensive collection.
The exhibition highlights the topical nature of the collection and includes important works by contemporary Finnish artists. The large works in the collection find the space they need in the arched galleries of the Tennis Palace and the public has an opportunity to see an overview of contemporary Finnish artists. A total of 100 works of art will be included in the exhibition: paintings, photographs, drawings and sculptures.
From Heino with Love has been curated by HAM curators Mikko Oranen and Jari Björklöv. The exhibition is organised in collaboration with the Heino Art Foundation.
