Art moves us, or not, in ways that we ourselves do not always quite understand, let alone knowing how to put them into words. I feel, for now is Amos Rex’s first exhibition of works from its own collections on this scale, and takes us through the art into emotions. The more than a hundred artworks chosen for the exhibition carry us from isolation to empathy, from ecstasy to nostalgia.

The art collection managed by Föreningen Konstsamfundet comprises more than 6000 works. It is based on the body of some 400 artworks accumulated by the businessman, newspaper publisher and patron of the arts Amos Anderson (1878–1961). His home museum, Amos Andersons Hem – opened on Yrjönkatu Street, Helsinki, in spring 2023 – and Söderlångvik Museum on Kimito Island both house permanent displays of mostly older works from the collection.

The large, wide-ranging exhibition I feel, for now, will show works from the collection made by more than 70 artists from the 1960s up to the present. It includes the commissioned participatory work by the international artists collective Keiken. This is the first in Amos Rex’s series of artworks that make innovative use of technology while subjecting it to critical reflection.

The exhibition is curated by Katariina Timonen, Kai Kartio, Kaj Martin and Krista Mamia.

The I feel, for now collection exhibition is at Amos Rex 27 March – 8 September 2024. The artists will be announced in March 2024. Stay tuned!
