Young Artists 2023 is an exhibition of today’s young contemporary artists. The exhibition will expand to seven venues across the centre of Helsinki.
This year, the exhibition will see the works of 36 young artists, all under the age of 35.
“Identity issues, in particular, are prominently present in the works. Several strong, deeply personal works were selected for the exhibition the themes of which highlight family and close relationships,” says visual artist Emma Ainala, who chaired the jury that selected the works for the exhibition.
The Nuoret 2023 (Young Artists) exhibition, held since 1939, is one of the oldest visual art exhibitions in Finland. Throughout its history, the exhibition has put a spotlight on many artists who have since become household names: Tove Jansson, Eila Hiltunen, Juhana Blomstedt, Ville Andersson, Nastja Säde Rönkkö, to name a few.
The exhibition will be displayed in seven different exhibition spaces: Kunsthalle Helsinki, Galleria G, Photographic Gallery Hippolyte, MUU Helsinki Contemporary Art Centre, Galleria Sculptor, tm•gallery and the Helsinki Art Museum, HAM.
The exhibition is produced by the Artists’ Association of Finland.
