Kari Vehosalo at Hämeenlinna Art Museum

Kari Vehosalo’s work “Figure on a Chair” (2017) is among the 105 artworks by 52 artists on view at Hämeenlinna Art Museum’s Facing Life exhibition. 

For Facing Life 25 young people aged 15–20 were invited to curate and deliver a new exhibition based on the Niemistö contemporary art collection. The young curatorial team assumed full creative control over the exhibition’s themes, content, display design and wider visual identity. The exhibition explores a series of themes that speak directly to young people, including identity, equality, mental health and social pressures. 

The exhibition runs until 16 October 2022.
