Welcome to Taidekoti Kirpilä! During the tour, participants can get to know Finnish art from the 1920s. This was a time when recently independent Finland lived through profound social and cultural changes.
Indeed, many artworks in the Kirpilä Art Collection show a tension between tradition and modernity that was typical of the time. The tour is based on the online exhibition which will be published on 5 May on the museum’s webpages, and it’s lead by Dr. Antonella Perna, who also curated the exhibition.
The Kirpilä Art Collection remote guided tour is arranged as a Teams meeting. You don’t have to download the app, but you can join the tour also by browser.
