The art collection of the Saastamoinen Foundation has evolved from the home collection of the Saastamoinen family of industrialists of Kuopio into one of Finland’s leading art collections. The Foundation, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, relocated its art collection in EMMA – Espoo Museum of Modern Art in 1999. The present exhibition presents the collection’s latest works of contemporary art, a consistent focus of the Foundation’s acquisitions in recent decades. Finnish artists featured in the exhibition include Jenni Eskola, Markus Rissanen, Jani Leinonen, Maiju Salmenkivi and Camilla Wuorenmaa. Foreign artists with works in the collection include Eggert Pétursson of Iceland, Joffe Chantal of the United Kingdom, and the Swedish artists Ernst Billgren and Roland Persson.
