Helsinki Biennial

Helsinki Biennial is an international art event that brings outstanding contemporary art to Helsinki’s archipelago nature.
The next biennial will take place from
12 June to 21 September 2025 on Vallisaari Island, in Esplanadi Park, and at HAM Helsinki Art Museum.

“The Helsinki Biennial could be Europe’s coolest new arts festival”


“An international extravaganza which – two months in – has outstripped even the expectations of its organisers, and simultaneously brought life and meaning back to a forgotten island with a chequered past.”

The Telegraph

“Long recognized as an environmental leader, Finland’s capital may soon be seen as a burgeoning art hot spot as well, propelled by projects like this summer’s inaugural Helsinki Biennial.”
