Exhibitions

Kiasma organises three major changing exhibitions annually, and a corresponding number of less extensive projects. The collection is presented annually in thematic exhibitions.

Kiasma’s exhibition programme consists of solo exhibitions by Finnish and international contemporary artists, or thematic group exhibitions.

Exhibition programming seeks to reflect the diversity of the phenomena, contents and expressive idioms of contemporary art. The selection, curating and mounting of exhibitions are done with different audiences in mind, yet without compromising the aim of presenting challenging content.

The exhibitions in Kiasma present an opportunity to experience and interpret art in many different ways.

Exhibition and project proposals

The Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma’s exhibition programme is devised and confirmed by the museum’s curatorial team and is based solely on invitations. The exhibition programme is planned up to two years in advance.

The museum’s curatorial team follows actively both the Finnish and the international contemporary art field, but we do also accept exhibition and project proposals, which can be sent to the following address: proposals@kiasma.fi (by e-mail only!). Your proposal should identify and provide a rationale for the exhibition concept or theme (1 page) and at most 6 images (.jpeg, 300 dpi, max 1 MB). For video art works, we ask you to include a link to the video file.

Since our exhibition programme is by invitation only, we do not give feedback on proposals sent to us. If your proposal has been successful, the museum’s curatorial team will contact you directly.
