Hans Op de Beeck: The Quiet Parade 21 Sept 2022 – 26 Feb 2023

The Belgian artist Hans Op de Beeck is known for his large-scale spatial installations and figurative sculptures that capture moments frozen in time, but he moves in a variety of ways between different media. Today, his almost monochromatic body of work also includes paintings, animations, texts, drawings, photographs, videos, opera and theatre. The Quiet Parade is a new immersive installation, which invites the viewer to ponder the ordinary moments and the essential questions of being.

Hans Op de Beeck lives and works in Brussels, Belgium. His works have been widely exhibited in both solo and group exhibitions around the world and now for the first time in Finland.

Museum rules

The rules exist so that both the artworks and the visitors can enjoy the museum. The mission of art museums is to present valuable artworks to the delight of people in a way that ensures their survival for the future too!

  • No drinks, backpacks or large bags are allowed in the exhibition space.
    Even just a single spilled drop of fluid can ruin an artwork. Large bags and backpacks, on the other hand, can scratch the works if in contact with them by accident.
  • Please take photos, but without flash.
    The works are sensitive to light, and for example drawings and paintings fade in the light.
  • Works should not be touched unless otherwise mentioned. 
    They may be damaged or become dirty, or move away from their original position.
  • Please consider other groups during your visit. 
    If you are visiting without a guide, please make space for guided groups in the exhibition space.
  • The teacher is responsible for the group during the visit. 

Remember also

  • A few lockers have an outlet for charging cell phones.
  • Unfortunately, the museum does not have a separate space for eating snacks. If the weather permits, we recommend a snack break on the domes of the museum courtyard! There are also cafés next to the museum.

Groups

Please note!

The Quiet Parade exhibition consists of narrow paths, which is why unfortunately you cannot visit the exhibition as a group (also applies to groups of adults).

Art workshops are available for school children of all ages. The intros are only available to high school/secondary school students. After the intro the guide leads the participants into the exhibition independently.

Elementary and middle school students must visit the exhibition under the supervision of a teacher, which is not possible in the narrow paths of the Hans Op de Beeck exhibition.

Art workshop 

Different colours, as well as their absence or otherwise unusual behaviour, affect a person’s emotional state and experience of the environment in many ways. The tour explores these effects through art, with the help of various tasks. The tasks of the art workshop are suitable for all kinds of participants: children and adults, those who enjoy art and those who love it.

The workshop will be held in the Studio Rex workshop space and the Sigurd Frosterus collection. In addition, the guide will take you on a short walk along the park-like paths of the Quiet Parade exhibition.

After the art workshop, you may tour the exhibition independently.
