realm of fine art exhibition

This summer, an exhibition titled Kuvataiteen valtakunta (Realm of Fine Art) 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 11 June to 29 August 2021, 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. This time, and for the first time, the exhibition activities have been designed to be implemented in cooperation between all six Finnish universities of applied sciences teaching fine arts. 

All six universities of applied sciences propose final projects of their arts students graduating in 2020 and 2021 to be included in the exhibition. The curators of the exhibition are the visual artists Krister Gråhn and Riikka Lenkkeri, both residing in Art Town.

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

The exhibition is supported by the Pirkanmaa Regional Fund (the Finnish Cultural Foundation).
