VEXI SALMI AND FRIENDS, MEMORIAL EXHIBITION

Hmeenlinna Art Museum, Hmeenlinna

  • 25.11.2022–22.10.2023

Hmeenlinna Art Museum will be marking the 80th anniversary of Vexi Salmi's birth with a memorial exhibition featuring an extensive selection of works from his collection.

 

Finnish lyricist, record producer and author Veikko Olavi Vexi” Salmi (21 September 1942, Hmeenlinna – 8 September 2020, Helsinki) amassed a significant art collection during his lifetime. In 2010, he and his partner Katri Wanner-Salmi donated the collection to the city where he was born and the citys art museum. In autumn 2022, Hmeenlinna Art Museum will be marking the 80th anniversary of Vexi Salmis birth with a memorial exhibition featuring an extensive selection of works from his collection.

Although best known in Finland for his creative output, including the thousands of song lyrics he wrote, Vexi Salmi was also a passionate art collector and connoisseur. My artworks are my friends,” he is known to have said. Although his acquisitions were often made on impulse, he was always guided by his exhaustive knowledge of art and a sense of emotional connection with the work in question. Salmi struck up close and enduring friendships with many artists, notably Juhani Harri and Jorma Hautala. The exhibition will additionally feature works by Juhana Blomstedt, Chris af Enehielm, Outi Heiskanen, Heli Hiltunen, Jani Hnninen, Pekka Kauhanen, Pertti Kekarainen, Anne Koskinen, Leonhard Lapin, Rosa Liksom, Leena Luostarinen, Mauno Markkula, Ukri Merikanto, Tapani Mikkonen, Olavi Pajulahti, Jorma Puranen, Tapani Raittila, Janne Risnen, Marjatta Tapiola and Viggo Wallenskld.
