marimekko + KIASMA Museum of Contemporary Art kicked off the KIMPASSA/TOGETHER Art Exhibition last night in Helsinki, Finland with hundreds of local art and fashion enthusiasts turned up to add vibes to the museum. mylifestylenews reports live exclusive from Helsinki.
The KIMPASSA/TOGETHER exhibition is a testing ground for new ideas. It brings together sixteen artists and designers who have created new work for the show. The all have a long-standing relationship wit either Kiasma or Marimekko.
The invited artist and designers could decide for themselves whether they wanted to collaborate or work alone. Many were inspired to challenge old habits and try something new.
Artists made use of the materials and production facilities offered by Marimekko, designers engaged in artistic experiments that they seldom have an opportunity to do in a commercial design environment. In the end result, art and design work together.
Top names Finnish contemporary art, design and fashion individuals includes :
Aamu Song & JOHAN OLIN
Exhibition opens from 16th May - 7th September 2014
