Anu Pentik - In the beginning there was a seed
WAM’s galleries are filled with Anu Pentik’s spatial and narrative collection of her latest artistic work. The extensive exhibition displays ceramics skillfully shaped into ﬂoating seeds, burned trees and other reﬂections of the various stages of life.
6 March – 16 May 2021
This exhibition examines the changing sea around us. Things that we have taken for granted are uncertain and causal chains are surprising in the future. Changes in the horizon and emotions reflected by the sea are pondered over in the exhibition with the help of the works of contemporary international and Finnish artists.
Contemporary art by the river
The Wäinö Aaltonen Museum of Art (WAM) is the Turku City Art Museum named after the famous Turku born sculptor, Wäinö Aaltonen (1894–1966). For nearly 50 years this modernist white museum building has been reflected in the Aurajoki river, becoming part of the cultural landscape on the east bank. The middle-aged museum isn’t content to just rest on its laurels, but is presenting new and experimental art projects. In addition to changing exhibitions, the programme includes various cultural events, lectures, concerts and theme days for families.
