Snowball Effect showcases contemporary art from Northern Finland. The artists and the artworks are selected though an open call by an invited curator. The exhibition has been arranged in rotation by the regional art museums of Oulu, Rovaniemi and Kemi and the Aine Art Museum in Tornio since 2012. In response to the open call for applications published in autumn 2020, 175 applications with more than 300 proposed artworks were received. The 2021 exhibition is curated and the artists and the artworks have been selected by artist–curator Pauliina Leikas, who has previously worked in roles such as the director of the Mustarinda Association in Kainuu.
