Urban Encounters – Finnish Art from the 20th Century

Urban Encounters offers an in-depth exploration of the interesting changes in Finnish society from the 1910s to the 1980s. The exhibited works from the Ateneum collection deal with, for example, urban life, home and identity – and plain everyday life. The exhibition features more than 300 works from more than 80 artists including Marcus Collin, Reino Harsti, Aarre Heinonen, Helmi Kuusi, Åke Mattas, Helene Schjerfbeck and Elga Sesemann.

Not Vital

Known as a versatile artist, Not Vital (born 1948 in Switzerland) uses his paintings to delve into the deepest layers of humanity, by wiping off all the excess on the surface. His meditative, colour-ascetic paintings depict the artist himself and those close to him, as well as familiar figures from the worlds of art and literature.
