- About Ateneum
In an open competition the audience got to choose an artist for the workshop, which will take place in April 2014. 800 friends of visual arts took part in the audience competition during October-November 2013. The workshop is part of the program of the IHME Contemporary Art Festival 2014 and of the 125th anniversary program of the Ateneum Art Museum.
The audience chose as its favorite the New World through Comics workshop by Katja Tukiainen. The participants in the comics workshop will get to try out how they would change the world if they were a Wonder woman or Wonder man. The fairytale-like imagery of Katja Tukiainen’s works holds within strong social themes. The voters were especially inspired by the themes and techniques introduced by the workshop. They also appreciated how well it suits participants of all ages and the idea of comic art standing out as an equal art form among others in the museum context.
The workshop enrollment will begin on 4 February, 2014.
Free admission. For ages 16 and over.
The IHME Days will take place at the Old Student House in Helsinki during 4-6 April, 2014.
