Exhibitions of Luuppi

Terttu Jurvakainen
A Shining Palette
OULU MUSEUM OF ART | The extensive retrospective exhibition showcases the milestones of Jurvakainen's output from the 1980s to the present day. The decades have accommodated different stylistic periods, but expressive use of colour and sensuous juxtaposition have always played a key role in her massive abstract paintings.
The Maija-Liisa Niemi
Art Collection
OULU MUSEUM OF ART | Oulu Museum of Art has received a bequest from the Oulu-born, Helsinki-resident Doctor of Dentistry and art lover Maija-Liisa “Maikki” Niemi.
Outi Pieski – Čuolmmadit
OULU MUSEUM OF ART | Outi Pieski (1973–) is a Sámi visual artist whose delicate paintings reflect the Arctic nature of her home region and the shared stories, cosmology and history of its important places.
Helena Kaikkonen
The Horizon of Longing
OULU MUSEUM OF ART | In her material-oriented artworks, textile artist Helena Kaikkonen (1959–) explores time, the northern nature, and the fragility but also the power of life.
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.

2019 Upcoming exhibitions

Growing It, Losing It
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.
Kati Leinonen – Äimärautio
OULU MUSEUM OF ART | Äimärautio, a series of photographs by photographer, MA Kati Leinonen (1974–) shot between 2015 and 2017, explores the relationship and coexistence between human beings and horses using photograph, video and sound. Leinonen, who started horseback riding when she was seven and still rides almost every day, knows the different communities and the current forms of the hobby closely.
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 60 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.
