The year 2021 marks the 30th anniversary of ARS FENNICA, Finland’s most prestigious art award.

They are Eija-Liisa Ahtila (Finland), Anne-Karin Furunes (Norway), Jesper Just (Denmark), Viggo Wallensköld (Finland) and Magnus Wallin (Sweden).
Finland’s most prestigious art award, the ARS FENNICA award is presented every two years by the Henna and Pertti Niemistö Art Foundation in recognition of a distinctive and outstanding contribution to visual art.
The winner of the ARS FENNICA 2021 award will be chosen by world-renowned art expert Hans Ulrich Obrist. The winner will be announced in February 2022. Visitors to the exhibition will have the opportunity to make their voices heard too by voting for their favourite artist.
