The Young Artist of the Year 2023 – Eetu Huhtala

Eetu Huhtala’s oeuvre consists of mechanical and large-scale metal sculptures and other multisensory works. His conceptual creations are based on workaday objects and technical devices that function contrary to expectations and reason, with no objective.

Tampere Art Museum will be closed for renovations after the summer exhibitions

Repairs will be carried out in the museum building next winter, causing the museum to be closed from October 16th, 2023 to January 26th, 2024. The Young Artist of the Year 2023 exhibition featuring Eetu Huhtala and the Backlight2023 exhibition will remain open until October 15th, 2023 as previously announced. The exhibition “Archaeology of Beauty” by visual artist Tuula Lehtinen will open at the end of February 2024.

The indoor air and factors affecting it have been studied in the museum building due to observations by staff and customers. The studies were originally conducted as a basis for renovation.
