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.
“Central to all three artists’ work is an examination of the aesthetics of art and the built environment. The works of Karoliina Hellberg, Raimo Saarinen and Tero Kuitunen form a path that wends through Amos Rex’s new and 1930s functionalist spaces.” Amos Rex’s senior curator Itha O’Neill says.
In 2019 Amos Rex’s exhibitions attracted 316,000 visitors, even though the museum was closed for a total of three months between exhibitions. The series presents the latest art in a freer, more intimate format and shortens the time during which Amos Rex is closed between exhibitions.
