In addition to a packed programme with keynotes, presentations and workshops, we have organised additional visits to some local museums. You enter the museums for free by showing your conference name badge.
Please note that travel to the museums in Helsinki is organised individually by each conference participant and that there are no specific tours to catch. Instead, we welcome you to explore the exhibitions by yourself, or perhaps together with new connections from the conference.
Malva unites the Lahti Art Museum and the Poster Museum under one roof and offers new and exciting experiences of art, posters and design. The NEMO reception on 20 November at 19:30 takes place at the Malva Museum and they are graciously keeping their exhibitions open exclusively for you from 18:00-20:00. We highly recommend getting to Malva early to see their current exhibitions before we gather for the reception.
The National Gallery is the largest art museum in Finland and is made up by three museums:
Amos Rex presents new, often experimental, contemporary art. It's located in a functionalist building called Lasipalatsi (‘glass palace’), a landmark of 1930s Finnish modernism. Currently Amos Rex is exhibiting five installations by Japanese composer and artist Ryoji Ikeda. The exhibition draws inspiration from the museums’ architecture and includes two brand new works created by Ikeda on the basis of his immediate spatial experience of the subterranean museum.
Oodi complements the cultural and media hub formed by Helsinki Music Centre, Finlandia Hall, Sanoma House and the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma. Oodi is a non-commercial, urban public space that is open to all.
