AXEL HAARTMAN – ALI MUNSTERHJELM – SANTERI SALOKIVI
14 Sep 2018 – 20 Jan 2019

Axel Haartman, Ali Munsterhjelm and Santeri Salokivi were not just fellow artists, but also leading figures of impressionism and post-impressionism based colour painting in Turku in the early 1900’s. In accordance with their Parisian teachings, the artists would capture the surroundings without forgetting the social aspects of reality. Munsterhjelm specialised in landscapes and urban art, particularly perspectives of the River Aura, while Haartman focused on still lifes, interiors, human portraiture and landscapes. Of the trio, Salokivi’s favourites were portraits, as well as city landscapes. Rear further

FOUR ELEMENTS
23 November 2018 –

The new collection exhibition sets loose the classical four elements of earth, water, fire and air in a hanging that juxtaposes classic works from the collection with new acquisitions. The title of the exhibition Four Elements is a reference to the ancient Greek theory of the structure of the universe. The theory survived as a starting point for European scientific thinking up to the beginning of the modern age. Today the theory has been replaced by the atomic theory, yet earth, air, fire and water remain fundamental ideas in our everyday conception of the world. The opposites that attach to their qualities – hot and cold, dry and humid – correspond to our immediate, bodily experience of the world. Four Elements presents an opportunity to see how artists over the centuries have conceived of the relationship between humanity and the elements, or physical reality in general. Read further
