Aalto galleries and exhibition venues

How can we make space for unexpected ways of looking at the world? Galleries and exhibition venues are co-produced spaces for action, bringing together the knowledge, content, vision, and passion of different agents.

Galleries and exhibition venues at Aalto University are co-produced spaces for action, bringing together the knowledge, content, vision, and passion of different agents. They provide experiences built on ideas and concepts, rather than artefacts. These spaces are open for unexpected encounters and diversity of voices, and exhibition-making happens as a collaborative practice.

Aalto University mediates, facilitates, and supports different levels of spaces such as coordinated spaces and curated spaces. There are spaces that include pop-up exhibitions, laboratories for student work, galleries, conferences, and temporary public art. Some galleries spaces include curated programs, where educational events take place through open calls and by invitations.
