Outi Heiskanen
8 October 2021 – 9 January 2022

The arts academician Outi Heiskanen (born 1937) is one of the most famous Finnish artists. Heiskanen is a virtuoso printmaker, but also an experimenter who questions the rules and breaks boundaries. Heiskanen is also known as a pioneer of performance art and land and environmental art.

The exhibition is curated by an expert on Heiskanen’s art and her long-time friend, Tuula Karjalainen PhD, together with the chief curator at the Ateneum, Sointu Fritze.

The exhibition, featuring more than 300 works, presents prints, drawings, paintings and installations, as well as recordings of performances from a period of more than fifty years. The exhibition also features a whole gallery’s worth of joint works by Outi Heiskanen and the artist Janne Laine.

Shedding light on the course of the prolific artist’s life is a rich selection of photographs and moving images, created, for example, by Sakari Viika, Jorma Puranen, Tarja Stranden and Georg Grotenfelt.

Ateneum exhibitions in spring 2022: The Modern Woman and Dialogue: Elina Brotherus and Hannele Rantala29.9.2021 13:40:24 EEST | Press release

From 11 February to 27 March 2022, the third floor of the Ateneum Art Museum will be divided between two exhibitions. The Modern Woman will discuss the role and position of Finnish women artists in the decades of 20th century modernism. Dialogue will present works by photographic artists Elina Brotherus (b. 1972) and Hannele Rantala (b. 1952) that are based on assignments and messages exchanged between the two artists. The artists featured in both exhibitions are role models for today’s young people: the themes are linked to the debate on equality and the opportunities of women to pursue careers as artists. When the exhibitions end, the Ateneum’s ventilation systems will be renovated, which means that the museum will be closed to the public for about eight months.

Vårens utställningar 2022 på Ateneum är Den moderna kvinnan och Dialog: Elina Brotherus och Hannele Rantala29.9.2021 13:38:35 EEST | Tiedote

På Konstmuseet Ateneums tredje våning visas två utställningar under tiden 11.2–27.3.2022. Den moderna kvinnan granskar de kvinnliga finländska konstnärers roll och ställning under modernismens decennier på 1900-talet. Dialog presenterar fotokonstnärerna Elina Brotherus (f. 1972) och Hannele Rantalas (f. 1952) verk som baserar sig på deras gemensamma projekt och budskap. Båda utställningarnas konstnärer är förebilder för dagens unga: temana anknyter till diskussionen om jämställdhet och möjligheten att som kvinna göra en konstnärskarriär. När utställningarna stängs ska luftkonditioneringen på Ateneum renoveras, vilket betyder att museet kommer att vara stängt för publik i åtta månader.

Ateneumissa keväällä 2022 näyttelyt Moderni nainen sekä Vuoropuhelua: Elina Brotherus ja Hannele Rantala29.9.2021 13:37:44 EEST | Tiedote

Ateneumin taidemuseon kolmannen kerroksen jakavat 11.2.–27.3.2022 kaksi näyttelyä. Moderni nainen tarkastelee suomalaisten naistaiteilijoiden roolia ja asemaa 1900-luvun modernismin vuosikymmeninä. Vuoropuhelua esittelee valokuvataiteilijoiden Elina Brotherus (s. 1972) ja Hannele Rantala (s. 1952) teoksia, jotka pohjautuvat taiteilijoiden yhteisiin tehtäviin ja viesteihin. Molempien näyttelyiden taiteilijat ovat esikuvia tämän päivän nuorille: teemat nivoutuvat keskusteluun tasa-arvosta ja mahdollisuudesta tehdä taiteilijanuraa naisena. Näyttelyiden päätyttyä Ateneumissa alkaa ilmanvaihtoremontti, jonka vuoksi museo suljetaan yleisöltä noin kahdeksan kuukauden ajaksi.
