30.11.2019–5.1.2020

The Tampere Artists’ Association celebrates the 100th anniversary in 2020. To mark the occasion, Kunsthalle Helsinki presents an exhibition with an overview of works by the association’s members. The Budding Centenarian features paintings, sculptures, graphic art, installations and one video piece in a show curated by art critic Pessi Rautio and sculptor Matti Kalkamo.

The jubilee exhibition will highlight 24 of the association’s 284 members, whose work represents a variety of emergent contemporary strands that contrast intriguingly against the backdrop of the association’s venerable history. Certain elements of their art also reflect their local identity as Tampere-based artists from the region of Pirkanmaa. The selected works show that one of the main thematic concerns preoccupying artists today is the challenge of accepting the raw, painful side of human existence and physicality.

The featured artists are: Terhi Asumaniemi, Liisa Hietanen, Lars Holmström, Anssi Jääskeläinen, Juha-Pekka Köykkä, Heta Laitakari, Marko Lampisuo, Tiina Lehikoinen, Riikka Lenkkeri, Virve Lilja, Karkki Mäkelä, Pasi Niininen, Paula Ollikainen, Tuukka Peltonen, Tomas Regan, Hannu Riikonen, Elina Ruohonen, SA Salmela, Markku Salo, Kristiina Sario, Tuija Suutari, Kirsti Tuokko, Jarno Vesala and Viggo Wallensköld.

Representing nearly 300 artists from the region of Pirkanmaa, the Tampere Artists’ Association is Finland’s second oldest functioning art association. It is based at the Mältinranta Art Centre, which serves the local community by regularly hosting high-quality exhibitions and offering art loan services. It also hosts workshops, art courses, recreational events and lectures both for professional artists and the community at large. The association additionally rents out studio space to artists, offering both an artist residency and workshop space for projects.
