The Sara Hildén Art Museum’s summer exhibition explores space in art

Art in Space, Space in Art explores how artists have dealt with space, spatiality and architecture.

On display are paintings, drawings, sculptures and spatial installations by more than thirty artists. The exhibition is based on the collection of the Sara Hildén Foundation, and it is complemented by the works being prepared for the exhibition by the artist Antti Oikarinen and the artist duo Grönlund – Nisunen.

Antti Oikarinen’s art has always a spatial point of departure, and he never makes single artworks, but entire exhibitions. For the exhibition Art in Space, Space in Art Oikarinen has created a spatial and substantial entity of his own, an exhibition within an exhibition.

The installation of Grönlund – Nisunen was inspired by the architecture of the Sara Hildén Art Museum, and it can be considered as a tribute to the current building, from which the museum is moving out.
