Share

Due to the COVID-19 situation, EMMA has made changes to the exhibition schedule. The Daniel Buren exhibition planned for the coming summer will open in spring 2022. EMMA will feature Aaron Heino’s solo exhibition in the summer, instead. Some current exhibitions have also been continued for an extended period.

The exhibition of the world-renowned French artist Daniel Buren is postponed until March 2022. Buren will create an ambitious work for EMMA that builds on the architecture of the museum, along with a series of events in the city. In June 2021, EMMA will feature a solo exhibition by Aaron Heino, a sculptor and recipient of the Fine Arts Academy of Finland Prize. The exhibition Off Topic includes dynamic sculptures, which draw inspiration from the tradition of pop art, among other things. Simultaneously, the museum will showcase The White Exhibition by Hesselholdt & Mejlvang. The exhibition by the Danish artists explores the different meanings of the colour white and ideas associated with it.

Due to the closure of the museum, current exhibitions have been extended. The 2020 exhibition by Elmgreen & Dragset, which has transformed the exhibition space into a surrealist car park, continues until 2 May 2021. The Eeva-Leena Eklund exhibition is extended until 22 August 2021. Eklund’s exhibition is followed by Tracing Boundaries by Chiharu Shiota, continuing EMMA and Saastamoinen Foundation’s annual autumn exhibition series. The exhibition opening in October 2021 has been extended to span approximately a year.

EMMA’s events are carried out virtually, whenever possible. For example, the Children’s Museum Festival, arranged annually by operators in the WeeGee Exhibition Centre, will take place as a virtual event during 6–7 March 2021. Up-to-date information on events can be accessed on EMMA’s website.
