Amos Rex Art Museum

Amos Rex is an art museum where the past, present and future meet.
 
Amos Rex is a meeting place for art and urban culture, consisting of new underground exhibition spaces, the old Lasipalatsi (glass palace) from 1936 and its Bio Rex cinema, as well as a vibrant event forum on Lasipalatsi Square, which will serve as the roof of the exhibition hall.
 
The core of Amos Rex resides in flexible and easily adaptable exhibition spaces as well as an art workshop dedicated to children and youngsters. The Lasipalatsi’s classical 590-seat movie theatre will provide a home for cross-disciplinary activities, numerous film festivals and regular film screenings on weekends. On weekdays, Bio Rex, with its atmospheric foyer, is available to rent for various events.
 
Amos Rex’s exhibition programme extends from the newest, often experimental, contemporary art to 20th-century Modernism and ancient cultures. Amos Rex aims to present captivating and ambitious art refreshingly and exuberantly. The goal will be for the past, present and future to produce unique experiences and surprising encounters beneath and above ground, and on the screen.

Summer 2021 exhibitions

Showing until September 5th, the “Between us” exhibition brings work by three artists (Karoliina Hellberg, Tero Kuitunen and Raimo Saarinen) to spaces beyond Amos Rex’s exhibition halls into areas that have not so far been used for exhibitions.

The “Blick” exhibition is a collaboration between visual artist Raija Malka and composer Kaija Saariaho, and is painterly, spatial and musical all at once, offering visitors an opportunity to shape the space with their own creativity. The exhibition is a multisensory experience that invites you to stay.
