A major exhibition of Finnish contemporary art launches in England in the summer 2015. “New Narrative and Reader” features contemporary art in many different forms and its concept is inspired by the Bury Art Museum and Sculpture Centre building’s history. Partly sited within a former library, “New Narrative and Reader” contribute to the ongoing act of collecting stories within space. Equally extensive exhibitions about Finnish art have not been seen previously in England.
The exhibition will be opened by the Finnish ambassador to Great Britain, Pekka Huhtaniemi, on Friday 5th of June, 2015, at 5.30 pm, welcome!
