Cavén, Guðmundsson, Hautala, Hänninen, Kujasalo, Niva and Vuokola on view in Vaasa

Works by Kari Cavén, Kristján Guðmundsson, Jorma Hautala, Jani Hänninen, Matti Kujasalo, Jussi Niva and Marko Vuokola are on view as part of the Swanljung Collection – Follow Your Heart exhibition at Kuntsi Museum of Modern Art in Vaasa. The exhibition runs through 25 February until 20 August 2023.

Dentist Lars Swanljung (1944–2022) acquired a large collection of contemporary art, which he donated to his hometown Vaasa in 2018. As an art collector, Swanljung was particularly attracted by discreet, minimalistic and conceptual art, but the works in the collection also contain humor, sensitivity and edginess. The Swanljung collection contains more than 900 works by around 400 artists, and focuses mostly on Finnish art.
