EMMA - Espoo Museum of Modern Art

EMMA - Espoo Museum of Modern Art is one of the biggest museums in Finland.

No Ordinary Moments

11.04.2018 to 06.01.2019

Opening alongside Meret Oppenheim in April is No Ordinary Moments, an extensive group exhibition featuring recent acquisitions and picks from EMMA’s collections. The show forms a bridge between Oppenheim’s world and contemporary life with a selection of surrealist-inspired contemporary works celebrating small, everyday miracles. The featured exhibits have an uncanny, otherworldly quality that transcends daily reality and plunges into the depths of the subconscious and unconscious mind.

The exhibition is an engaging, experiential compilation of installations, media art, paintings, sculptures and photographs by Finnish and international contemporary artists like Oscar Furbacken, Jeppe Hein, Juhana Moisander, Miikka Vaskola, Saara Ekström, Anna Estarriola, Ernst Billgren, Mahlin Ahlsved and Nabb + Teeri. Many of EMMA’s recent acquisitions were made specifically for this exhibition. Works from EMMA’s collection are also on permanent display in public venues around Espoo.
