Hommage à Lauri Anttila

This autumn, we will be celebrating the 175 years of Academy of Fine Arts. An exhibition honouring the teaching work of Lauri Anttila (1938—2022), a long-time rector and professor of the Academy of Fine Arts, will open at the beginning of December at Kuva/Tila.

Lauri Anttila was a pioneer in artistic research, a reformer of art and artist education, and an esteemed and well-liked teacher. In his works, Lauri Anttila often referred to the legacy of the past influencing the present time. The exhibition explores the influence that Anttila’s work has had on the younger artist generations. Featured invited artists include Anttila’s students from various decades and artists who carry on the spirit of his art.

NB. Exhibiton is closed on Dec 6, and Dec 22–Jan 5.
