Generation 2020 12 Feb – 23 August 2020
Generation 2020 is a fascinating peek into the minds and art of an emerging generation of artists. Amos Rex’s spring exhibition Generation 2020 presents works by over 80 artists aged 15–23. The diversity of the artists is apparent in the exhibition that shows artworks selected through an open call from over 1 600 proposals. The 150+ artworks of the exhibition take us through subjects, such as sexual identity, climate change, technology and future, well-being, craftmanship and visual arts traditions as well as social and personal memory.
Generation 2020 will re-open to the public when the state of emergency is lifted and will be on display until 23 August.
Amos Rex re-opens 1 June
Amos Rex opens on Monday 1 June in accordance with Finnish government guidelines. To ensure the safety of museum visitors and staff, there will be restrictions on the number of visitors, instructions on distancing and hygiene and other special arrangements.
Customer facilities and exhibition displays have been adjusted to ensure that visiting the museum is safe. Changes have been made in the presentation of works that could previously be touched, and some works have been moved onto the museum website. Generation 2020 runs through Sunday 23 August.
While the museum was closed in March and April, there were more than 160,000 visits to Amos Rex’s free digital experiences. Even after the museum opens, this content on the museum’s website and social media accounts is an excellent way to orient oneself before a visit or to experience the exhibition for those who have been advised to stay home.
