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.

Choosing exhibition structures
Regardless of whether you're building your solo exhibition or you're part of the group of exhibitors, it's worth outlining your exhibition layout well in advance. Once you have reserved the space and possibly shared it with other exhibitors, you can check the structures we are offering.
To get started on the exhibition layout, you can check the availability of exhibition structures (pedestals, stands etc.) through takeout.aalto.fi from subcategory "events", that's under Väre Takeout. You'll see the next four months in the booking calendar and can book the structures in advance. We kindly ask you to consider the other exhibitors (in other spaces) and to not overbook all the structures just in case. The structures can be used in other gallery spaces outside Väre. In Beta-Space (Otakaari 1X) they have their own pedestals, which come with the space reservation.
Limited selection of hanging wires, hooks, paper clips, clamps, tape etc. ask Takeout staff for it.
Depending on how you want your work to be displayed, Takeout has wide variety of audiovisual equipment to implement your plan. You'll find the equipment like screens, projectors, tablets, lights etc. divided into different categories from takeout.aalto.fi.
As a student you would need to book the AV-equipment by sending us an email to [email protected], if your exhibition is more than 2 weeks away. Employees can book the equipment 4 months in advance. If you're not sure what you'll need, Takeout staff will be happy to help you with the tech. The sooner you contact us, the better supply will be available of course.
Good to remember:
Lock the equipment if the space is not supervised, add safety cables when hanging up, as the equipment's suspension can break, pull and tape the cables with care, remember space-specific rules for hanging, etc. so that the exhibition is safe and accessible for visitors. There will be more info added to the pages later.
Create a project, find interesting resources, then reserve them by selecting dates from their calendars.
