Contemporary Finnish Lithographs on View at the Met Museum, Manila

Set to open on November 8, 2012 at the Met Museum’s Tall Galleries, “Contemporary Lithography in Finland” is a debut exposition of Finnish printmakers in Manila. It comprises 33 works by some of the most active lithographers from the Nordic country, writes the Daily Tribune.

The participating artists –Maija Albrecht, Kalle Berg, Matti Hintikka, Valpuri Kylmänen, Kuuuti Lavonen, Tapani Mikkonen, Kaisu Sirviö, and Miikka Vaskola have selected representative samples of their production. Most were made in the atelier in Helsinki where the eight artists work together. Some prints were  produced especially for this exhibition. They also thoughtfully included older works, providing insights into the development over time of each artist’s personal approaches or and techniques, materials and vision.

The exhibition is a rich source of study in contrast, in offering various lithographic challenges, and in presenting the vision of a particular intellectual and geographic landscape.

“Contemporary Lithography from Finland” will run until December 10, 2012.
