Top names of Finnish contemporary art, design and fashion will meet in May 2014 in an exhibition organised jointly by Marimekko and Kiasma.

The invited 16 artists and designers have all been given a carte blanche to create any kind of work for the exhibition. They were also free to choose whether they want to work alone, in pairs or in a larger group. Some artists use the materials and production processes of Marimekko in new ways, others explore the starting points of inspiration that are common to product design and art. They will all create new works for the exhibition, designed particularly with the spaces of Kiasma in mind.

The featured artists are Jenni Hiltunen, Erja Hirvi, Maija Louekari, Aino-Maija Metsola, Tiina Mielonen, Teresa Moorhouse, Tommi Musturi, Noora Niinikoski, Tuula Pöyhönen, Sami Ruotsalainen, Aamu Song & Johan Olin, Anu Tuominen, Jenni Tuominen, Timo Vaittinen and Hanna Vihriälä. Many of them have combined aspects of design and art in their education, work experience or production.
