It is another occasion for Purdy Hicks Gallery to bring to light the achievements of artists from the unique place that is the Helsinki School, and the revolution it has brought to contemporary photography.

About

In celebration of Finland's Centenary Year and to mark its close relationship with the School of Arts, Design and Architecture at Aalto University, Helsinki, Purdy Hicks Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition featuring the work of five Finnish artists representing three generations of Finnish photography. All are deeply rooted in Finland's identity and, among others, have allowed for the country to expand the borders of its visual culture.

It is another occasion for Purdy Hicks Gallery to bring to light the achievements of artists from the unique place that is the Helsinki School, and the revolution it has brought to contemporary photography. The practices presented in this exhibition reveal Finland's original voice within the arts. Whether they are conceptual portraits and collages, deserted or man-altered landscapes, or even still lives echoing Dutch masters, the artists' works acknowledge their strong identities and invite the viewer into the contemplation of their multiple interpretations.

Featuring:

Ulla Jokisalo, Sandra Kantanen, Milja Laurila, Anna Reivilä, Santeri Tuori
