Opening of the Kirpilä Art Collection's 30th anniversary exhibition Years that repeat their days

The opening of the Kirpilä Art Collection’s anniversary exhibition is arranged on Friday 3 June at 2 pm8 pm.

During the opening weekend the Kirpilä Art Collection is open also on Saturday 4 June at 12 pm4 pm and on Sunday 5 June at 12 pm4 pm.

The year 2022 marks the thirtieth anniversary of the Kirpilä Art Collection. To celebrate its triennial jubilee, the Finnish Cultural Foundation has commissioned a contemporary art exhibition titled Years that repeat their days (In Finnish: Vuodet, jotka toistavat päivänsä). The exhibition will receive visitors until Sunday 2 October 2022.

The anniversary exhibition is curated by Mariliis Rebane, and includes newly commissioned works from artists Freja Bäckman, Shia Conlon, August Joensalo, Minjee Hwang Kim, Iona Roisin, Emmi Venna, and Bogna Luiza Wiśniewska.

Comprising site-specific works of various mediums—some of which are disguised as everyday objects—the exhibition becomes inseparable from the domesticity of the museum space. The homelike environment of the Kirpilä Art Collection thus forms a foundation for questioning time as a linear entity. The exhibition aims to challenge strict delineations between past, present, and future. The linear development of a life path, from dependent childhood into independent reproductive adulthood, is also questioned.

By taking the idea of queer time as its starting point, the exhibition seeks to centre pleasure while suggesting a pace of existence that is measured by pulsation rather than the ticking of a clock.

The Kirpilä Art Collection is open to the public on Wednesdays at 2 pm–6 pm and on Sundays at 12 pm–4 pm, and for group visits by special request.

We look forward to seeing you!
