A bit last minute but could be interesting!

Ars Fennica Protected content presents the five candidates vying for Finland’s most notable visual art award: Petri Ala-Maunus (FI), Miriam Bäckström (SE), Ragnar Kjartansson (IS), Egill Sæbjörnsson (IS) and Aurora Reinhard (FI). Central themes of the exhibition jointly arranged by Amos Rex and Ars Fennica include the role of the artist, power relations, new pictorial realities and the Western tradition of landscape painting.
The exhibition involves two important choices: the award winner and visitors’ choice. You decide the latter! What was the work you found most touching, awe-inspiring, beautiful, significant, or in any case the best? Vote for your favourite artist during your exhibition visit. The winner of the award and visitors’ choice will be announced on 21 August Protected content .
