The year 2019 marks the 70th anniversary of visual artist Olli Lyytikäinen’s (1949–1987) birth.
Olli Lyytikäinen’s works from the 1970s anticipated the spirit of the art of the 1980s: among his contemporaries, the artist has taken on an almost mythical sheen as a modern Finnish artistic genius. The exhibition opens the Ateneum’s new Fokus gallery, which will present concise displays, featuring selected artists or themes from the Ateneum collection.
As an artist, Olli Lyytikäinen was ahead of his time. Lyytikäinen’s images both reveal and conceal at the same time, and they always seem to display a mysterious, mythical dimension. The exhibition, to be staged in one gallery, shows some 40 works, mainly watercolours and drawings, from 1969–1982. The works exhibited come from both the Ateneum’s own collection and private collections.
