Natalia Goncharova
27 Feb–17 May 2020

Natalia Goncharova (1881–1962) is known as a central figure and innovator in Russian avant-garde art. The exhibition offers a comprehensive overview of the artist’s work from the first four decades of the 20th century, including works that were inspired by folk art and religious icons. In addition to visual art, Goncharova designed costumes and sets for Sergei Diaghilev’s famous Ballets Russes and created designs for fashion houses in Moscow and Paris, was involved in avant-garde cinema, and provided illustrations for experimental poems.

The exhibition features more than one hundred works, including a large number of paintings, but also illustrations, costumes, sketches of set designs, and recordings of ballet performances. Almost all the works in the exhibition will be seen in Finland for the first time.

Before coming to the Ateneum, the exhibition is on display at Tate Modern in London and the Palazzo Strozzi in Florence. The main curators of the exhibition are Natalia Sidlina and Matthew Gale of Tate Modern and Ateneum Art Museum’s chief curator, Timo Huusko.

Before opening at Ateneum, the exhibition will be shown at the Nationalmuseum, Stockholm from 20 February to 17 May 2020.

Magnus Enckell
23 Oct 2020–24 Jan 2021

Finnish painter Magnus Enckell (1870–1925) is one of the key artists of the golden age of Finnish art in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He is especially known as a representative of Finnish symbolism. Enckell’s best known works include Boy with Skull (1893) and The Awakening (1894), which are part of the the Finnish National Gallery’s collection. Enckell’s oeuvre, however, is extensive, covering portraits, landscapes, fantasies, religious topics, still lifes, and studies of people. He also created numerous monumental paintings for public spaces.

The exhibition is curated by museum director Marja Sakari; director of collections management at the Finnish National Gallery, Riitta Ojanperä; and the chief curator of exhibitions at the Ateneum, Anna-Maria von Bonsdorff.
