Finnish Comics Now exhibition offers a glimpse to the colorful, strange and surreal visions of Finnish modern comics. The eight internationally acclaimed artists showcased are part of a generation born in the 1970’s and 1980’s. The exhibition features works from JP Ahonen, Hanneriina Moisseinen, Tommi Musturi, Reetta Niemensivu, Anna Sailamaa, Petteri Tikkanen, Marko Turunen and Amanda Vähämäki.
Feelings of alienation and other worlds, either outside or just at the borders of our own reality, are common themes in these works. Several artists also handle themes of dealing with the past – either on an individual or a collective level. The pieces offer an overview of what Finnish comics are now and maybe hint of what to look forward to in the future.
The exhibition is open to the public from 11am to 4pm on the following dates:
9/18/2016 11:00 AM - 10/2/2016 4:00 PM
Embassy of Finland
