Culture

The Same Sea

Helsinki Biennial from 12 June to 26 September 2021 at Vallisaari island, Helsinki Archipelago. The Same Sea is the title of this edition. Forthy artists, contemporary art, exhibitions, workshops, events, and educational activities to open to art life.
Maija Tanninen-Mattila, director of Helsinki Biennial: “I believe that in these challenging times, people long for art and cultural experiences more than ever before. As we enter a new reality, it is integral to rethink existing patterns of behaviour and create safe experiences for engaging with art. Helsinki Biennial launches with a future-orientated vision, advocating ecological ethics and celebrating the synthesis of art and nature. The bridge we are building between the Finnish and international art worlds reflects our interest in interdependence, connectedness and mutual understanding across vastly different geographies and cultures. I hope that the biennial will bring all visitors hope, light and joy”.
