Aalto University has multiple exhibition spaces across the Otaniemi campus and the curators welcome interest from students, staff and researchers in organising their own exhibitions and projects.
Väre Exhibition Spaces
There are 9 exhibition areas in the Väre building which is home to the schools of Art, Architecture and Design. These spaces operate both course-led and curated programmes throughout the year which include exhibitions, events and projects providing an interface to the innovative work undertaken by artists, designers and researchers within and beyond the Aalto community.
Inaugurated in September 2018, Väre is situated at the intersection of two principal coordinates, Otakaari 1 and the Harald Herlin Learning Centre. The exhibition programme emphasises in innovatory co-producing, circulating knowledge and strengthening the dialogue for the whole University and diverse collaborators. Väre offers a multitude of exhibition spaces for showcasing creative work and hosting transdisciplinary meetings.
