ARTISTS' ISLAND is a group exhibition by artists working in The Harakka Artists' House on the Harakka Island in Helsinki. The exhibition has been curated by Veikko Halmetoja. Artists’ Island has come together through a collective process, where the emphasis of the curatorial role has been on ideas and planning of the final presentation.

Nothing additional was brought to Artists’ Island. It is not a spectacle, nor does it declare anything. The exhibition is a suggestion for another way of working, complementary to the international art events: a local group of artists, committed to its work environment and context, working together across divisions of generation and genre. The aim was not to build but to lift into view from what was already there.

The exhibition grows from the atmosphere and environment of the island. Almost all the works on view have been created in the studios of the Artists’ House. The core of artistic work is clearly communicated: the desire to express oneself so that others can see and experience something important. The exhibition is a gift from the island’s artists to its visitors.

The exhibition has received support from Arts Promotion Centre Finland, the Arts Council of Uusimaa and the City of Helsinki.
