Egypt of Glory
Coming in fall! 9 Oct 2020 – 21 Mar 2021
Egypt of Glory will be shown in two parallel locations – at Amos Rex, Helsinki, and at the Art Museum of Estonia’s Kumu Art Museum, Tallinn. The rare two-part exhibition is based on one of the most important collections of Ancient Egyptian art and culture outside Egypt – the collection of Museo Egizio in Turin, Italy.
Studio exhibition: Between us
14 Apr–5 Sept 2021
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.
Raija Malka & Kaija Saariaho: Blick
12 May–22 Aug 2021
Visual artist Raija Malka and composer Kaija Saariaho will take over Amos Rex’s exhibition space in a new and experiential way in summer 2021. The work is painterly, spatial and musical all at once, offering visitors an opportunity to shape the space with their own creativity.
22 Sept 2021–16 Jan 2022
In the subterranean exhibition rooms of Amos Rex, Viola’s artistic register is on full display: from large immersive projections of mythically flowing waters and fires, to smaller, intimate works that home in on emotions and states of being. The Bill Viola exhibition opens at Amos Rex on 22 September 2021 and is the artist’s first solo show in Finland.
