Helsinki City Art Museum

Author: Anothertravelguide.com0 COMMENTS

The Helsinki City Art Museum is an art institution of a vast area of activity and huge premises. The museum comprising two separate venues - the Tennis Palace Art Museum and the Meilahti Art Museum - holds 10-15 themed temporary exhibitions, covering both classic and contemporary art and featuring various inter-genre projects. The museum also manages and finances the Kluuvi Gallery, an art venue focusing on exhibitions of experimental and non-commercial works by Finnish artists, opening its door to projects hard to bring to life elsewhere in Helsinki.
The collection of the Helsinki City Art Museum includes all works of art purchased by the city since the 19th century, totalling some 7.5 thousand. The largest part of the collection consists of private donations, including great artwork by the renowned Finnish artists Hugo Simberg, Pekka Halonen and Eero Järnefelt. The most recent large donation was a gift from the museum's former chief curator Katriina Salmela-Hasan: an extensive collection of contemporary art featuring some vivid examples of the Finnish contemporary art from the 1980s and 1990s.
