Exchange student's Open laboratory, Kaiku Gallery, Helsinki, FI
from 11.22 to 12.09.2012
The exchange students of Kuvataideakatemia will transform the Kaiku Gallery into an open laboratory:
a dynamic working space for discussing and exploring each other’s ideas surrounding our artistic
practices and our backgrounds.
This open laboratory will be divided into sections where different activities will be taking place. The title
of our show is a quote by the Fluxus artist George Brecht: "if you want to know something you should
spend your time with somebody who knows something.". This is our starting concept and it emphasises that
we want the space to be an experimental and curious hub where we can interrupt and critique each
other's practices at all stages.
We want everyone to feel welcome to visit and participate in this open laboratory and we are very much
looking forward to seeing what will happen.
The gallery will be open from 11 - 7 during the week and from 12 - 4 on weekends.
