Growth and Loss
Hair In Contemporary Art
OULU MUSEUM OF ART | If the hair is fine, everything is fine! Hair is no matter of insignificance in human life, or art. Hair is part of the body, but forms a special whole of its own. For visual artists, hair sometimes has a surprisingly powerful symbolic value as material, but also as the bearer of stories, meanings and notions.
3.5.2019–31.8.2020
Future on a plate
SCIENCE CENTRE TIETOMAA | We eat to live, not the other way round. An interactive exhibition guides visitors through the plethora of information related to food: how to create a balanced diet, how meat gets to our shops, how long you have to run to burn calories from one chocolate bar and so on.
The Best of Times!
SCIENCE CENTRE TIETOMAA | Old Tietomaa favourites now making a glorious comeback in The Best of Times! include the ski jump simulator, the floorball shot, the labyrinth of traps, the throwing bag, the shooting range and the goalkeeper.

Kakaravaara – How our children used to live
NORTHERN OSTROBOTHNIA MUSEUM | There was a place on the edge of the town where working-class families with many children used to live. Their homes were shabby and their toys were self-made. The place was called Kakaravaara, "Hill of Children". The exhibition aimed for children peeks into everyday life in Oulu of old.

Shared dreams
Works from the Heino
Art Foundation collection
OULU MUSEUM OF ART | Artists are masterful at taking “reality” and re-creating it, stretching and bending it and sharing it. The featured works, by some 50 artists, are an opportunity for visitors to dive into a veritable ocean of strange and wonderful visions and imaginings and to leave everyday life behind, as surreal as that too may at times seem.

Gorby is coming – Are you ready?
