“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.”
