Lars-Gunnar “Nubben” Nordström (1924–2014) was an uncompromising pioneer of Finnish abstract art. In honour of his centenary year, Kunsthalle Helsinki will exhibit the full wide range of the multifaceted and prolific artist’s lifework, from early figurative creations to the very last works. Nubben used various media in his art, from graphic printing to sculpture.The extensive exhibition curated by Juha-Heikki Tihinen reveals the uncompromising nature of Nubben’s artistic thinking – uniform in style, but rich in variation.
2024 marks the centenary of the birth of Nubben. The exhibition at Kunsthalle Helsinki is part of a larger ensemble in honour of the anniversary. The programme of the Nubben 100 year is organised by the Lars-Gunnar Nordström Foundation, Kunsthalle Helsinki, Hanaholmen – Swedish-Finnish Cultural Centre, Ateneum Art Museum, Galerie Forsblom, EMMA – Espoo Museum of Modern Art, Gallery Elverket / Pro Artibus Foundation, Amos Rex, and Tuusula Art Museum.
