Events in Art and Archaeology

Alfredo Jaar: Tonight No Poetry Will Serve
HELSINKI  •  Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma  •  11 April - 7 September 2014
The overriding theme in the artist's large scale installations, films, photographs, objects, and neon works is human and social morals – our responsibility for our own fate and that of others. Presented on two floors at Kiasma, the retrospective show comprises more than 40 works from 1974–2014, including such ground-breaking works as Lament of the Images, The Silence of Nduwayezu and The Sound of Silence.

Born in Chile in 1956, Alfredo Jaar has lived in New York since 1982.

Kiasma Hits
HELSINKI  •  Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma  •  27 September 2013 - 7 September 2014

The Kiasma Hits exhibition pays tribute to the 15-year-old museum and to contemporary Finnish art. The show includes works from 50 artists in Kiasma’s Collections.

One interesting addition to Kiasma Hits is Vladislav Delay’s commissioned audio work installed in the museum’s toilets. The piece is the electronic music composer’s interpretation of the architecture of and life in Kiasma.

The exhibition and the building will both be presented in early 2014 in an experiential tour led by the performance group Kokimo.

The Kiasma Hits publication sheds light on the history and concepts of contemporary art. It is already the tenth volume in Kiasma’s collection series.
