ArtHelsinki will open as an entirely renewed and curated fair event for contemporary art in September 7-11, 2016 at the Messukeskus Expo and Convention Centre in Helsinki, in connection with the Habitare Furniture, Interior and Design Fair.
ArtHelsinki stated its new vision for an internationally pertinent contemporary art fair during its 2015 edition with a curated section, called Helsinki Highlights, which presented an installation composed of a variety of art initiatives acting locally and operating internationally.
Curated under the direction of Artistic Director Aura Seikkula, ArtHelsinki will present an ambitiously curated and architecturally innovative event showcasing a variety of commercial galleries and non-profit initiatives accompanied with a socially engaging, discursive and performative programming. Striving to become the leading contemporary art fair event in the Nordic region ArtHelsinki continues to evolve as a hub for introducing the enticing art scene of Helsinki at large, outside its fair facilities.
For creating an engaging process towards its 2016 edition, ArtHelsinki organizes a series of events both in Finland and abroad. The ArtHelsinki Events program series is conducted in collaboration with Frame Visual Art Finland.
