On Wednesday 10 June, the opening ceremony of the OBJEKTI6 exhibition was held in Espoon keskus (Espoo Centre).The exhibition’s idea is to bring art closer to the everyday life of Espoo residents. The works in this exhibition, which is free of charge to everyone, include contemporary sculptures, installations, comics and paintings that will be on display in Espoon keskus from 10 June to 6 September 2020.

Now held for the sixth time, the exhibition’s theme this year is the Wild West. The theme is used to examine the notions of Espoon keskus as a “wild” place located beside the railway station, the historical Kuninkaantie, the idyllic Espoo River and the park landscape of Espoo Cathedral. The Wild West also refers to the cultural transition caused by rapid urbanisation, construction and sharp population growth that affects the everyday life of Espoo residents in many ways as part of the development of the Helsinki Metropolitan Area.

The exhibition features works from a total of 10 artists. The artists featured in the exhibition are Anna-Kaisa Ant-VuorinenMatti HagelbergYasushi Koyama, Anni LaaksoLe Hien Minh, Antti MinkkinenKalle MustonenJenni Tieaho, Iiro Törmä and Noora Ylipieti.

The exhibition is produced and curated by visual artists Merja Puustinen and Andy Best.
