Oulu Museum of Art: "Season in Us" 17.6.2023–7.1.2024
The joint exhibition by Oulu Museum of Art and the Finnish Fine Art Foundations explores how seasons are reflected in nature, landscapes and people's lifestyles. In a northern-hemisphere country like Finland, people are used to four seasons – or, in the Sámi community, even eight. In the recent years, however, we have had to adjust to the idea that the seasons are not what they used to be. Climate change affects global climate trends, which in turn have a tangible and significant impact on the living conditions of plants, animals and people.
The exhibition is made in cooperation with the association of the Finnish Fine Art Foundations. There are total 17 artworks in the exhibition from the Nordea Art Foundation Finland collection. Following members are included: Alfred Kordelinin säätiö, Fortum Art Foundation, Föreningen Konstsamfundet, Gösta Serlachius Ar Foundation, OP Group Art Foundation, Pro Artibus Foundation, Signe and Ane Gyllenberg Foundation, Nordea Art Foundation Finland, UPM-Kymmene Cultural Foundation, Åbo Akademi Foundation and Lönnström Art Museum.
