Raija Malka and Kaija Saariaho: Blick
Visual artist Raija Malka and composer Kaija Saariaho will take over Amos Rex’s exhibition space in a new and experiential way in summer 2021. The work is painterly, spatial and musical all at once, offering visitors an opportunity to shape the space with their own creativity.
12 May – 22 Aug 2021
Studio exhibition: Between Us
Between us brings work by three artists to spaces beyond Amos Rex’s exhibition halls into areas that have not so far been used for exhibitions. The invited artists, Karoliina Hellberg, Tero Kuitunen and Raimo Saarinen, created these works specifically in dialogue with each other and with the museum’s spaces.

Söderlångvik villa & museum in Kemiö
Amos Andersson’s Villa Söderlångvik is open again after an hiatus of two years. This hidden gem lies in Kemiö just 170 kilometres from Helsinki in archipelago milieu amid one of the biggest applegroves in Finland. Now meticulously restored, the building showcases a selection of works from Amos Rex’s modern art collection, set amid Amos Anderson’s original interiors. The place breathes with the atmosphere of the 1930’s when Anderson converted the nineteenth-century country house into an Italian-style classicist villa.
To celebrate the re-opening of Söderlångvik’s main building, the museum presents the exhibition Through New Eyes. It features more than 100 Finnish paintings and sculptures from the Amos Rex collection, mostly from the first half of the twentieth century. The works in the exhibition have been carefully chosen to suit the atmosphere and interior design of each room. The artists include Sigrid Schauman, Rafael Wardi, Sulho Sipilä, Santeri Salokivi, Ragnar Ekelund, Alvar Cawén and Ellen Thesleff.

Amos Rex Art Museum – JKMM Architects
“It is a landmark of the best kind: not necessarily the tallest or grandest, but smart and versatile, a place to want to return to time and time again”, writes Gunvor Kronman, CEO of Hanaholemn.
Since its opening, the Amos Rex Art Museum, designed by JKMM architects, has been a great public and architectural success. It is tucked away underground in the ancient glass palace in the heart of central Helsinki.
Through its architecture, it has set new boundaries for what a museum can and should be. With its huge arched exhibition halls and eye-catching lanterns that make it feel as though it is above ground, the building never fails to surprise.
Amos Rex Art Museum – JKMM Architects is an in-depth study and a close-up of Amos Rex through texts and commentary, sketches and photographs. In English. Sold at Amos Rex Shop at the museum and online.
