ART, artists and art lovers will meet inside and outside Kiasma to participate in a variety of events as the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma celebrates its 10th anniversary with free entrance. Everyone can join and enjoy the birthday-weekend programme starting at noon on 31 May and 1 June.
Strip at the Kiasma Theatre: Have you ever wondered what it is like to hear a museum whispering sounds of art? The unique audio work that mirrors the experience of an art museum is a creation of the musicians Niclas Kristiansson, Roope Kinnunen and Matti Pentikäi- nen. Microphones were placed around Kiasma recording sounds in real-time to show us how Kiasma sounds.
Scenes in open rehearsal by Ville Walo: What is the essence of the reality of objects and people’s relationship to paper as a cultural construction material? Paper is a natural means of communication, we don’t think about its reality and much less about how it influences us. It is a thought-provoking, almost philosophical, travel through art, approached through juggling, the written word, sketches, film narration and vocal expression which will premiere in September.
Fifteen minutes of fame: Kiasma will feature street artists, dancers and musicians willing to express their creativity on a stage by the main entrance. Who knows? Maybe fame finds its way and new stars are born.
Pink surprises in the streets of Helsinki: All poetry lovers should pay attention to people dressed in pink suits wandering the streets of Helsinki giving letters. Guests who bring the letter to Kiasma can participate in writing a collective poem. Let your creativity and imagination flow, be a poet!
Several workshops are organised during the weekend. The Kiasma flea market can be something interesting to discover while music lovers delight themselves with DJ music in Café Kiasma.
