The Art Career exhibition consists of different art works from 20 Finnish artists. It has been organised by the AVA Galleria, located in Helsinki, and run by Helena and Edson Cardoso.

“The gallery differentiates from the others as it is the only gallery in Finland that organises art exchanges between national and international galleries and museums,” explains Helena Cardoso.

The AVA Galleria has been organising art exchanges between Finland and South American and European countries since 2003. The project of this particular exhibition exchange started in 2007, when Egle Oddo organised a photography exhibition that brought a group of artists from Valencia to Finland. “Now it is time for Finnish artists to pay them a visit in return,” says Cardoso.

Art exchange is certainly something to be promoted and supported. It is important for Finnish artists to let the world know about the sensitivity and warmth that is expressed in their artworks.
