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.
The exhibition boasts a wide-ranging offering of contemporary art, which depicts the diversity of gender and sexuality.
With this exhibition, the museum is taking a stand on equality and introducing new voices to the debate on this subject.
The exhibition will be opened by Bishop of the Archdiocese of Turku Mari Leppänen.
Virtual vernissage is organized online on Thursday June 3rd at 6 p.m.
