Art Fair Suomi Goes Galleries

Art Fair Suomi spreads over art galleries in Helsinki, opening the summer of fine arts 2021! This year, instead of having one common venue, the festival will highlight various galleries and art communities around the capital area – including Forum Box!  During the festival week, we are exceptionally open Tue – Wed from 12 to 7 pm and the program includes e.g. artist meeting and guided tours.
