Oooooooh! Huuto’s 20th Anniversary Exhibition

10–31 December 2022

Around Christmas and New Year, the exhibition is open Dec 20-22 and 27-31 normally at 12-7pm.

Galleria Huuto started to organize exhibitions in 2002, first at Viiskulma in Helsinki. After many eventful and art-filled years, Galleria Huuto is currently located in Kamppi, in the courtyard at Kalevankatu 43. Promoting a sense of community and diversity and offering an outlet for artistic experiments, the project launched by 25 young artists has gradually grown into Finland’s largest artist-run gallery. Today Huuto has 140 members. Every year, more than 50 exhibitions are held at Galleria Huuto, which makes it the biggest operator in Helsinki’s visual arts scene based on its exhibition volume.

In order to celebrate its 20th anniversary, Galleria Huuto will bring together a wide selection of works from its members. In accordance with the gallery’s exhibition policy, the anniversary exhibition Oooooooh! will also be surprising and exceptionally diverse, representing big and small art and everything in between. For the duration of this exhibition, Huuto will double its floor area as works will not only be on display in the actual gallery space but also on the third floor of the building where additional spaces have been rented for this special occasion.

The event is supported by the City of Helsinki, Oskar Öflund Foundation and Art Promotion Centre Finland.The opening is sponsored by Olvi, Smilco´s, The Gutsy Captain Company ja Olutposti. Thank you for all our supporters!

The exhibition leads us to the world of science fiction

Art Museum Gösta 6.11.2021—17.4.2022

Art Odyssey 2021 is an exhibition inspired by science fiction. The exhibition presents works of eight contemporary artists in which influences from both literature and films can be discerned. In the selection of works, the focus has been on videos, sculptures and other spatial works of art.

The opening view on arrival at the exhibition space is like the opening scene of a movie. Something has happened, only the consequences of the event remain, and it is up to the viewer to draw conclusions. The presentation of the exhibition utilises the gigantic dimensions of Art Museum Gösta’s large exhibition hall, such that the exhibition takes over the entire hall from floor to ceiling.

The artists are Lauri Astala, Petri Eskelinen, Roland Persson, Joseph Popper, Tiina Raitanen, Kimmo Schroderus, Magnus Wallin and Charlotta Östlund. The exhibition is curated by Petri Eskelinen and Kimmo Schroderus.
