In Autumn 2020, Elmgreen & Dragset will create a site-specific installation for their exhibition at EMMA, accompanied by a selection of their iconic artworks. The exhibition marks the world-famous artist duo's Finnish premiere – and at the same time – the 25th anniversary of their collaboration, which has repeatedly challenged the conventions of the art world, in a subversive, yet playful manner.

KAMU’s special exhibition, Everything and Nothing – Architects Kaija + Heikki Siren is the first in Finland to present a comprehensive review of the Sirens’ architecture. The simple beauty characteristic of the Sirens’ style led the Italian composer Luigi Nono to exclaim: Tutto e niente! This has everything and nothing!

The world can be a troubled and knotted place, and Eeva-Leena Eklund's works echo this. Eklund's paintings are firmly anchored in reality and observations of it. Motifs for her work may include the fabric of a sofa, tomatoes, her grandfather's wartime postcards from the battlefront, or streetscapes. Eklund looks beyond everyday curiosities; at the windowsill where unattainable longing has been replaced by staring animal figurines made of porcelain.
Kenzi Rinno’s photographs take us back to the beginning of the 1970’s, when Espoo was a quickly changing municipality in the middle of a hectic change into a city. The grain fields had to give way and new neighbourhoods were built to meet the needs of the growing city. The change in the cultural landscape has been well preserved in Kenzi Rinno’s photos.
Please come and explore the lost landscapes of the 70’s!
