The portrait of President Sauli Niinistö is a collective artwork made up of a hundred smaller works created by as many artists. Among the creators are sculptors, printmakers and visual, photographic, video and performance artists, all of whom belong to the younger generation of artists who work or have worked in Finland. All artists were free to create their own segment of the portrait without knowing how the others would approach the task.Get to know the exhibition
Fantastico! explores an artistic movement known as magic realism, which emerged in Italy at the end of the First World War. The works exhibited are characterised by silence and a mysterious atmosphere, and the conflict between reality and the world of dreams. The depictions of everyday life seem to reveal a hidden side of existence. The exhibition features masterpieces by artists such as Giorgio de Chirico, Carlo Carrà, Felice Casorati, Antonio Donghi and Cagnaccio di San Pietro.
