Additional museum visits

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.

    Lahti Museum of Visual Arts Malva (Lahti)

    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.

    Finnish National Gallery (Helsinki)

    The National Gallery is the largest art museum in Finland and is made up by three museums:

    1. Ateneum Art Museum covers art from the 19th century to the modern era.
    2. Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma offers experiences of art and new perspectives on life.
    3. Sinebrychoff Art Museum is the only museum in Finland that specialises in old European art.

    Amos Rex (Helsinki)

    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 Helsinki Central Library (Helsinki)

    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.
