Takkahuone

The presentation of contemporary art found in Aboa Vetus & Ars Nova is nowadays completed by Takkahuone Gallery opened in 2011. Takkahuone Gallery offers the museum a chance to present smaller exhibition projects and to extend various contemporary art themes to a wider current perspective. Four temporary exhibitions can be found annually from the gallery. From the artist residence programme maintained by the museum every year, one artist is invited to display his or her works in the gallery. The first artist-in-residence exhibition will be held in 2013.

Takkahuone Gallery is located at the upper floor of the museum, in the western corner of the building. From its windows the visitor can take a look over the city. During the 21 years of Aboa Vetus & Ars Nova museum, the gallery has functioned e.g. as a project exhibition space and as a warehouse.

The contents of the gallery changes in the same rhythm with Ars Nova's exhibitions.
