TAMK Art Exhibition in New York
Pekka Ruuska and Teemu Räsänen - fourth year students of our Fine Arts Programme - made a successful exhibition in Syracuse, New York. They were joined by Inga Mustakallio who graduated last year and works today in Geneva.
The 12 hour exhibition included performances, a workshop in erotic art, community art, drawings and paintings. The local audience seemed to be very interested in Finnish art and artists.
Pekka Ruuska commented: Even though we live an era of globalization, there's still big cultural differences between Europe and the U.S. The different cultural backgrounds generate art forms that stand out from the customary art around us. This brought the audience to experience something they did not expect coming to the exhibition.
