Classics of Finnish contemporary art are presented alongside famous international artworks as well as the latest acquisitions from the Kiasma collection. The Kiasma Hits exhibition pays tribute to the 15-year-old museum and to contemporary Finnish art. The show includes impressive art by nearly 50 artists. The 'hits' selected from Kiasma's collections lead us to the very foundations of contemporary art. Kiasma Hits is a review of Kiasma's collections and of the history of Finnish contemporary art. A commissioned piece by the Polish artist Mirosław Bałka will be installed in Studio K, to remain thereafter in Kiasma's collections. Room X is reserved for the latest acquisitions, some of which are yet to be made. The audience will also have a chance to influence the selection of works for the show. Daycare-age children will choose their own colourful favourites from the collections, to be exhibited starting from February 2014. One interesting addition to Kiasma Hits is Vladislav Delay's commissioned audio work installed in the museum's toilets. The piece is the electronic music composer's interpretation of the architecture of and life in Kiasma.
The Kiasma Hits publication sheds light on the history and concepts of contemporary art. It is already the tenth volume in Kiasma's collection series.
