“Right Here, Right Now”, is the continuation of the successful ongoing exhibition “Here We Are!” – Exhibition at Helsinki design week 2017 (18.09.2017 – 06.10.2017) curated by Helsinki International Artists’ Association Ry (HIAA). With designers and artists such as Elise Gegauff, Jessica Soueidi, Riitta Säkö, Eila Leonoff, Sandra Heilemann, Timo Ala-Vähälä, Bernardo Rivera, MariC and Victor X the exhibition offers a wide dialogue around the concept of freedom in design and art.
Freedom of expression in a world of contemporary art and design is a double edge sword containing necessity as well as difficulty. However, it’s an absolute in the creative process and we wish to embrace the individuality of each artist in this exhibition. Looking at not only the artworks as part of the piece but the artists as well; where they are from and their journeys that has led them towards their artistic voice and practice. Exhibiting both Finnish and International artists offers a variety of insights that will spark a conversation between the corners of the world through art and design, and we welcome you all to take part of this dialogue.
