Kiasma, the contemporary art
wing of the Finnish National Gallery, holds over 8,000 works in its collection and showcases the best of Finnish and Nordic artwork in a modern, light-filled building. The Round-Trip exhibit showing during 2018 and 2019 collects works by 26 artists from the Baltic regions to reflect their shared history, culture and arts. Other exhibits, past and present, include the candidates for the Ars Fennica Award, the Aalto Natives showcase, which was shown at the 2017 Venice Biennale and the absurdist paintings of English artist Grayson Perry. On top of this, Kiasma has a dedicated programme for children, and even a ‘colour workshop’ for babies under one year of age. During August 2018, the museum is open until midnight on Fridays.
