Join us for the launch of SHAPE – http://www.shape-helsinki.fi – a new website resource for Helsinki’s contemporary art landscape, a mapping of art spaces and public events across the city. Initiated by PUBLICS and Kohta, SHAPE (Spaces, Helsinki, Art, Projects, Events) highlights current public events, spaces, times and locations.

The launch of SHAPE will take place on Saturday the 12th at the Teurastamo outside area and the program includes DJ/live-sets from Tuomas A. Laitinen & MYÖS collective, and live music by Frank Frank Frank. Additionally, there will be a small finissage to celebrate the last day of ‘among, within’ exhibition at Kohta.

Earlier in the day, please join us at PUBLICS to experience a new window commission and solo show ‘Nightfall / Videvik’ by Estonian artist Merike Estna. Please see details here: https://www.facebook.com/events/940400613382168

SHAPE launch program at Teurastamo, next to Helsingin Kahvipaahtimo:

4–6pm
Artists Magdalena Åberg and Anna Tahkola at Kohta

4–5pm
Tuomas A. Laitinen will play a hybrid DJ/live-set that creates an amorphous symbiosis of East African electronic music, medieval tunes, and shapeshifting sound collages derived from Laitinen's compositions.

5–6pm
MYÖS presents: 12 Months of Pain!
This energetic duo will make your hips move and your heart pound through the magic of music. Expect hard beats, soft grooves and fun surprises.

6–7pm
Frank Frank Frank – a power trio that combines the deep existence of pop music, the force of human vocals and the magic of improvisation. The group has drawn influence from artists like Prince, Spice Girls and Björk.
