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 are very positive about us working together!
We curated and coordinated Gallery Lapinlahti, the exhibition space for contemporary art in a former mental hospital in Helsinki during the years 2016-2019. In Gallery Lapinlahti we organized both open call and curated exhibitions focused in contemporary art in all mediums.
Arts promotion centre Uusimaa Finland awarded Artist Collective Kunst in 2018 for extraordinary work in the field of arts and coordinating & curating Gallery Lapinlahti.
