ARS17: Hello World! at Kiasma
On view through January 14, 2018

The internet and digitalization have radically altered our everyday lives. They have transformed our work, recreation, culture and economy and changed the way we communicate with one another. The internet has become a platform for constructing identities and expressing emotions. And, inevitably, the digital revolution has also influenced the practice of art.

ARS17 is a major exhibition of international contemporary art on the theme of digital revolution. The exhibition will showcase artists of the new millennium and offer a fresh approach to contemporary art by also expanding the viewing experience into the online realm.

The exhibition showcases works of several Finnish and international contemporary artists and also features a variety of events and performances.
