Grains of Time: Finnish Woodcut Artists Society 10 years
24 November 2023–19 May 2024
Grains of Time: Finnish Woodcut Artists Society 10 years celebrates Finnish woodcut art from the past to the present day. The oldest form of printmaking is thriving as a diverse, experimental form of contemporary art, evolving from prints and books to three-dimensional artworks. Woodcuts sketch out personal histories, memory, nature and knowledge.
The exhibition also explores the methods and history of woodcut making. Woodcuts selected from the Hämeenlinna Art Museum collection outline a century of Finnish woodcuts, from its roots to modern forms of expression.
