Art in Transformation

The exhibition Art in Transformation was accompanied by the publication of a book by Maaretta Jaukkuri, Muutosten pyörteissä – Suomalaista kuvataidetta 1960-80-luvuilla (‘Art in Transformation – Finnish Visual Art from the 1960s-80s’).

The Art in Transformation  book brings to a close the Association’s series of chronological  publications. Our Pictures has as its theme the Golden Age of Finnish art from the 1850s to the early 1900s, Two Faces of the Modern showcases the art of the 1920s and 1930s, and Constructors of Light presents post-war art from the 1940s and 1950s.

The exhibitions and the books have focused attention on less-researched periods in the history of Finnish art. Maaretta Jaukkuri’s book is the first comprehensive account of the development of Finnish art from the 1960s to the end of the 1980s.

Costructors of Light

Constructors of Light book is written by art historian, Doctor of Philosophy Erik Kruskopf, who creates an interesting review of the visual art and artists in the 40’s and 50’s. The book is published by the Finnish Literary Society (SKS).
