realm of fine arts exhibition

This summer for the third time, an exhibition titled Kuvataiteen valtakunta (Realm of Fine Arts) in Mänttä-Vilppula presents the artworks of a number of fine artists who have recently graduated from one of the six Finnish universities of applied sciences teaching fine arts.

The exhibition, which is open to the public from 9 June to 20 August 2023, is produced as a collaboration between the culture services of Mänttä-Vilppula and the universities of applied sciences. 

  • LAB University of Applied Sciences (Institute of Design and Fine Arts, Lappeenranta and Lahti)
  • Lapland University of Applied Sciences (Visual Arts, Tornio)
  • Arts Academy of Turku University of Applied Sciences (Fine Arts)
  • Tampere University of Applied Sciences (D.P. in Media and Arts, Fine Art) 
  • Satakunta University of Applied Sciences (Fine Arts Campus, Kankaanpää)
  • Yrkeshögskolan Novia (Culture and Arts, Fine Arts, Pietarsaari)

The objective of the exhibition Kuvataiteen valtakunta is to improve the visibility and position of newly graduated artists in Finland. The exhibition also highlights the important role of the universities of applied sciences teaching fine arts in the training of fine artists. 

The famous art centre and interesting attraction Mänttä-Vilppula Art Town can be considered a significant arena for presenting the works of emerging and newly graduated artists. The exhibition activities have been designed to be implemented in cooperation between all six Finnish universities of applied sciences teaching fine arts. 

Ilari Laamanen is the curator of the Realm of Fine Arts 2023 exhibition.

The exhibition will be set up inside an store building in the town centre of Mänttä. The town’s cooperation partners in the implementation of the exhibition are Serlachius Museums, Yrke Kiinteistöt Ltd, Koskelantalot Ltd and Autere Adult Education Center.
