Wäinö Aaltonen - The Joy of Creating 4.2.2023 - 21.5.2023

The extensive retrospective exhibition presenting Wäinö Aaltonen’s art from the 1910s to the 1960s is based on his monumental works created in Tampere and Turku. The statues on Hämeensilta Bridge and the statue of the runner Paavo Nurmi in Turku are among Wäinö Aaltonen’s most notable public works. Over time they have become symbols and emblems of the spirit of these cities and indeed of Finland more generally. The exhibition will comprise over 100 works: sculptures, medals, paintings, drawings and book illustrations. In addition, the exhibition will be accompanied by Nuutti Koskinen’s media work Pirkkalaisveistoksista.

Pioneer of queer art - Del LaGrace Volcano

Bodies of Resistance, an exhibition devoted to the works of the internationally renowned pioneer of queer art Del LaGrace Volcano (b. 1957), consists of a diverse gallery of photographs of persons, bodies, genders and sexualities that reject society’s heteronormative classifications. The exhibition is composed of photographs taken by Volcano over different decades during their career. It offers a diverse presentation of their portraits, self-portraits and their documentary photographic background as well as various projects from the late 1970s right up to the 2020s.
