Color, beauty and interpretations on Rococo – during the whole summer in Porvoo!

Salon de Porveaux – Porvoon Salonki is a playful and decorative group exhibition by eight individual artists. A starting point for the exhibition is Rococo: the artists interpret its phenomena from today’s perspectives and in contemporary techniques. Under the sugary surfaces lies a rougher truth – the beautiful flowers smell like plastic, the elegance of porcelain fades to junk and delicious paintings are in the verge of getting sour. Still there is room for dreams and imagination, maybe for hopes of something yet in the future?

The spaces of Porvoon Taidehalli and Kulma Gallery will be transformed into relaxing summery oases. The exhibition features installations, sculptures, paintings, videos and public art works situated near Taidetehdas. There is an additional program of open workshops for people of all ages.

Exhibition program includes:
Jun 9th Exhibition opening, performance Anna-Sofia Sysser
Jun 12th & 14th Styrofoam Salon workshop, facilitator Nelli Nio
Jun 30th & Aug 7th Adornment Workshop, facilitator Anna-Sofia Sysser

Porvoon Taidetehdas is located at Läntinen Aleksanterinkatu 1, Porvoo, Finland.
