Birger Carlstedt: Le Chat Doré
Amos Rex presents the life’s work of Birger Carlstedt (1907–1975) in an extensive exhibition. Carlstedt designed Finland’s first Functionalist interior to a café that opened on Unioninkatu in 1929. The café, Le Chat Doré, has been reconstructed for the exhibition. Café visitors can experience a moment of indulgence in a prohibition-era setting.

The Frosterus collection
Sigurd Frosterus’s post-impressionist art collection has been on deposit at the Amos Anderson Art Museum for nearly 25 years. The collection is owned by the Sigurd Frosterus Foundation, which was established in 1988 by Frosterus’s daughters, Johanna Weckman and Clara Ekholm, to preserve their father’s memory, art collection and intellectual legacy.
