Dreamy – Queer Imaginaries

Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, Helsinki

  • 28.4.2023–26.11.2023

Dreamy showcases queer works from the collections of the Finnish National Gallery.


Dreamy presents a selection of works from the Finnish National Gallerys collections reflecting on issues of gender and sexuality. It deals with subjects related to queer self-searching, pain, love, desire, fantasy and dream fulfillment.

The question at the core of the show is: How does one live a queer life? The term queer in this context refers to a way of being or doing that involves liberation from conventions. The featured works are like codes that can be deciphered to discover new connections between oneself and the world. Such liberation is fundamentally linked to the world of dreams and fantasy.

The featured artists explore themes such as seeking connections, finding a home, dualism between private and public life, and the search for love. The themes of the Dreamy exhibition are extended and deepened by a programme of performances at Kiasma Theatre.

Featured artists are Lynda Benglis, Jessica Andrey Bogush, Rotimi Fani-Kayode, Nan Goldin, Artor Jesus Inker, Jukka Korkeila, Anne Koskinen, Reija Merilinen, Kalervo Palsa, Tero Puha, Jacolby Satterwhite, Anna Uddenberg ja Bogna Luiza Wisniewska. The exhibition is curated by freelance curator and writer Max Hannus.
