The Last Artists Exhibition
The traditional annual ARTISTS exhibition, organised by the Artists’ Association of Finland, has come to an end. Celebrating the 150th anniversary of the Artists’ Association of Finland, The Last Artists is the association’s 119th annual exhibition, and probably the last of its kind. The traditional annual exhibition has provoked hot debates for more than hundred years. Is the institution still needed? And what are the principles behind the exhibition?
First founded in 1893, the aim of the exhibition was to illustrate the state of contemporary art in Finland. Instead of the traditional open call, the Last Arists Exhibition features 12 artists and groups selected by curators Marketta Haila and Villu Jaanisoo.
The featured artists are Markus Copper, Elina Juopperi, Dzamil Kamanger & Kalle Hamm, Jukka Korkeila, Kalle Lampela, Harrie Liveart, Kimmo Modig & Jaakko Pallasvuo, Mimosa Pale in cooperation with the Other Spaces live arts collective, Pink Twins, Seppo Salminen, Suohpanterror and Pilvi Takala, representing different media and generations.
