THE INTERNATIONAL TURKU BIENNIAL IS FULL OF SURPRISES
The Turku Biennial, an exhibition of contemporary art, has been organized in Aboa Vetus & Ars Nova regularly since 2003. The seventh international Turku Biennial opens the museum's doors to leading contemporary artists from Finland and Europe. Half of the artists were chosen for the exhibition through an open artist application and half were invited based on the suggestions of the chosen artists. The theme of the Biennial, The Unexpected Guest, is fulfilled both in the artist selections and in the new works prepared for the exhibition.
