Grains of Time: Finnish Woodcut Artists Society 10 years
24 November–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.
The Woodcut Artists Society members featured in the exhibition: Reetta Ahonen, Laura Ahvonen, Outimaija Hakala, Iina Heiskanen, Sanna Horvath, Jussi Juurinen, Outi Koivisto, Heli Kurunsaari, Kari Laitinen, Tuula Moilanen, Tiina-Katriina Mustonen, Johanna Pihlajamaa, Kukka Pitkänen, Taru Salonen, Leena Vainio and Anniina Vainionpää.
The exhibition is curated by Hämeenlinna Art Museum curator Riikka Kuittinen.
This exhibition is supported by the Finnish Heritage Agency.
