THE MAJOR STUDENT DAY

HAM Tennispalatsi (Eteläinen Rautatienkatu 8), Thursday, November 22, 2018 at 11 am - 7 pm

Helsinki Art Museum HAM and HYY invite you to the Helsinki Art Museum on November 22! Free entry with a student card. The student day also features additional programme by HYY members that grant you new perspectives on the themes of the exhibition.

The main exhibition at HAM is THE MAJOR EXHIBITION - the first major exhibition by the British artists Gilbert & George in the Nordic countries in twenty years. The exhibition includes more than 50 large pieces made in 1991–2016, most of which are now making their Finnish debut. The art is intended to confront, provoke, interrogate, disrupt, inspire, and even de-shock the audience – but what will you make of these cheeky gentlemen?

The museum will also host additional programme by the HYY student organisations Aistimus, Eidos, Kumous, Media and Sub. Explore the exhibition through an art appro, cut and paste in a zine workshop, and listen to a panel that discusses the future.

The museum is open from 11 am to 7 pm. The schedule of the additional programme will be released soon.
