ONE HUNDRED YEARS, A THOUSAND MEANINGS at the Jyväskylä Art Museum
June 9th – October 10th, 2017
The exhibition content is approached from four different themes: Finns in Images, The War Within Us, Citizen Imagery, and Emotional Landscapes and Feelings. What do portraits reveal about people? How is the national imagery of bubbling rapids, dead trees, threatening clouds and national landscape interpreted today? What kinds of feelings does the artwork communicate? And do Finnish people compare their own war memories with contemporary situations of refugees and fear? The exhibition visitors are encouraged to consider these questions as they observe the artwork.
