Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma Architect Steven Holl

Osmo Rauhala
28 September 2012–13 January 2013
Kiasma presents a solo exhibition of new work by Osmo Rauhala, an artist dividing his time between Siuro, Finland, and New York. In his paintings, Rauhala complements animal and plant symbolism with a pure world of abstract signs.

Toby Ziegler
28 September 2012–13 January 2013
The sculptures of the British artist Toby Ziegler build up into a spatial installation which makes use of the architecture of the Studio K gallery and the view from its window. The functional shapes of aircraft containers are juxtaposed with seemingly abstract figures based on images of classic sculptures sourced from the Internet.

Collection exhibition
2 November 2012–17 March 2013
Occupying three entire floors of the museum, the collection exhibition explores the use of documentarism in contemporary art: how art combines fact and fiction, how things can be documented, archived and classified, and if documents can restore something already disappeared. The exhibition also examines the changes of documentarism in different media and their impact on the content of art. The international group exhibition consists mostly of new acquisitions to the Kiasma collection.
