Presenting classical and contemporary art side by side, the exhibition offers new perspectives both on iconic works of Finnish art and on recent acquisitions. The show comprises nearly a hundred works by established artists, most of them Finnish, in a variety of media ranging from painting to sculpture, from assemblage to photography and video. Old masters featured in the show include Werner Holmberg, Akseli Gallen-Kallela, Eero Järnefelt, Magnus Enckell, Alfred William Finch, Juhani Harri, Ismo Kajander and Kain Tapper, whose works engage in a fascinating dialogue with recent acquisitions of contemporary art by such names as Petri Ala-Maunus, Emma Helle, Sasha Huber, Jouko Korkeasaari, Esko Männikkö, Umppa Niinivaara and Miikka Vaskola. Key works among newly acquired are the gifted works from museum’s Friends Association and ones from Lars Göran Johnsson’s donation.

Welcome to experience the many dimensions of the four elements!
