The Generation exhibitions’ ambitious goal is to present young art that is on the rise. The first Generation exhibition took place at the Amos Anderson Art Museum in Spring 2017.

Generation 2020 is an extensive exhibition including a total of 80 artists. The open call for the exhibition saw 468 applications and over 1,600 work proposals from artists aged 15–23.

In their works, several applicants explored the human relationship with the surrounding nature and technology – themes that define the future of the rising generation.

The artists were selected by a panel headed by visual artist Hannaleena Heiska. The panel included the Generation 2017 exhibition’s artists, Sanni Weckman and Eliel Tammiharju as well as Amos Rex’s Museum Director Kai Kartio, Curator Katariina Timonen and Head of Education Elsa Hessle.
