Exhibition

Birger Carlstedt: Le Chat Doré

Amos Rex exhibits the works of the modernist Birger Carlstedt (1907 – 1975) in an extensive retrospective exhibition spanning the artist’s entire career, from his early abstract experiments in the 1920’s to his later concretist period which began in the 1950’s.

Carlstedt was a pioneer of finnish modernism and abstraction – a multitalented dandy – whose intrests ranged from interior design and scenography to monumental painting. The exhibition will include the reconstruction of Carlstedt’s interiors for the café Le Chat Doré which opened in 1929 on Unioninkatu in central Helsinki and was in business throughout the prohibition.

The exhibition is based on Amos Rex’s Birger Carlstedt Collection which the museum received according to the last will and testament of the artist and his wife. Along with the exhibition the museum will publish a catalogue which includes five articles discussing different aspects of Carlstedt’s vast body of work.
