Artist Collective Kunst (Taiteilijakollektiivi Kunst) was founded in spring 2013 by finnish artists Jarmo Palola, Anu Suhonen and Julia Weckman. January 2016 the Collective expanded and got three members more; artists Christina Holmlund, Pia Paldanius ja Sirpa Päivinen. Together we do and make, plan and speak. We organize contemporary performative exhibitions and artistic interventions, develop all kinds of projects and events to work on. We curate and coordinate Gallery Lapinlahti, the exhibition space for contemporary art in a former mental hospital in Helsinki. Our work with open call and curated art exhibitions and events started in June 2016. We are very positive about us working together!
Arts promotion centre Uusimaa Finland awarded Artist Collective Kunst in 2018 for extraordinary work in the field of arts and coordinating & curating Gallery Lapinlahti.
