Kiasma (Museum of Contemporary Art)
The Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma is part of the Finnish National Gallery, along with the Ateneum Art Museum and the Sinebrychoff Art Museum. The Finnish National Gallery is Finland’s largest art museum organisation. Its activities are governed by the National Gallery Act.
Kiasma organises exhibitions, performances and events. Public programming in Kiasma makes contemporary art accessible to everyone. Its services range from colour play for toddlers to art workshops for grownups to guided tours and events. Kiasma’s extensive educational programming integrates contemporary art into schoolwork.
The museum also houses the Kiasma Library, which specialises in contemporary art, and the Kiasma Theatre, a stage for contemporary live art. Kiasma Club is a free service that anyone can join to earn benefits and discounts on Kiasma services.
Kiasma not only presents contemporary art but also collects and preserves it. Our art collections are part of the collections of the Finnish National Gallery and as such is a significant element of Finland’s cultural heritage. Currently, Kiasma has over 8,500 contemporary artworks in its collections.
