Birger Carlstedt: Le Chat Doré
Amos Rex presents the life’s work of Birger Carlstedt (1907–1975) in an extensive exhibition that encompasses the artist’s entire oeuvre, all the way from his abstract experiments of the 1920s to the concretist period beginning in the 1950s. The exhibition includes a reconstruction of the legendary café Le Chat Doré. Carlstedt designed Finland’s first functionalistic interior to a café that opened on Unioninkatu in 1929. Café visitors can experience a moment of indulgence in a prohibition-era setting.
