The Abstract! exhibition, to open at the Finnish Museum of Photography in November 2017, will celebrate the hundred-year history of photographic abstraction. The exhibition will present a large number of Finnish artists from different periods, and the famous international early abstractionists Alvin Langdon Coburn, László Moholy-Nagy, Man Ray, and August Strindberg.
1.11.2017 to 7.1.2018
The exhibition Rose by Sofia Okkonen is a photographic foreplay and profile of a woman. It presents a woman isolated in a studio, posing for a camera. The model is like an amateur actor, who gets the script just as she arrives in front of the casting directors.
