Helsinki Art Museum re-opens with Ai Weiwei
24 September 2015Following a major renovation and expansion of its exhibition spaces, the Helsinki Art Museum (HAM) in Finland re-opens its doors this September with an exhibition of new and recent work by Ai Weiwei, his first solo show in Finland.
Transforming the Tennis Palace’s iconic 12-metre high domed galleries, the exhibition celebrates the artist’s use of wood and includes the world premiere of two new works: ‘Garbage Containers’ and ‘White House’. The exhibition also presents celebrated installations, sculptures and photographs, including ‘Handcuffs’, ‘Grapes’ and ‘Tree’.

Ai Weiwei's work is also currently on show at the Royal Academy of Arts in London, until 13 December 2015. More information is available here.
