Works from the museum's art collection

Ars Nova
27.11.2020−26.9.2021

The upper floor of the museum is usually dedicated to the museum’s own art collection. The museum has almost always the opportunity to show a selection from its permanent collection of over 650 works.

The displays and themes are changed regularly. Each selection shows well-known classics from the collection, as well as works that have spent more time in storage. This keeps the collection alive and accessible and the works tell a different story every time they are on show.

This exhibition shows Finnish contemporary art and international modernism. Both have been central to the collection since it was founded.
