Galerie Artek was an exhibition space that operated in Helsinki from 1935 to 1997. Founded by Maire Gullichsen (1907–1990), the gallery was famous for its bold exhibition programme. Maire Gullichsen steered the gallery with a firm hand, and is known to have acquired art from exhibitions held there. New archival research has uncovered connections between shows at Galerie Artek and the art collection of the Maire Gullichsen Art Foundation.

Maire Gullichsen was one of the founding members of the Artek design store, along with architect Alvar Aalto (1898–1976). The Gullichsen art collection includes works by Aalto that illustrate the different periods of his architectural career and his practice of exploring ideas by sculpting wood, drawing and painting. The exhibition also examines the dynamic between Aalto’s abstract artworks and his architectural designs.

Maire Gullichsen, Alvar Aalto and Galerie Artek showcases a period of transition in Finnish fine art when abstraction in its various forms came to challenge the established norms of aesthetics.

The exhibition is part of the ALVAR AALTO Week 2020 program. Alvar Aalto Week 2020 is to be held in Pori and Eura, Finland, 22–30 August. The theme of the week will be ”Aalto in everyday life”.
