The museums’ summer exhibitions will be postponed until next year

The museums of the City of Vaasa will be closed until 13 May 2020, in accordance with the government’s restrictive measures taken to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. For this reason, some of this summer’s exhibitions will be postponed until 2021.

The postponed exhibitions are an anniversary exhibition presenting the Kuntsi collection and an exhibition called At the Summerhouse, which was planned for the Ostrobothnian Museum.

The Vaasa City Art Gallery’s exhibition of Jan-Erik Andersson’s work will go on display at the Ostrobothnian Museum next year. Changes are also planned for Filmverkstaden’s 10-year exhibition.

However, the exhibitions will be prepared for viewing according to the planned schedule. New dates will be announced later as part of the 2021 exhibition programme.

According to the current exhibition programme, summer exhibitions will still take place at the Tikanoja Art Museum. Works from the golden age of Finnish art will be presented in the exhibition, Poplar Alley and Other Works from the Emil Aaltonen Collection, as well as a photographic exhibition of collectors from Vaasa called Visiting the Collector.

By Nature exhibition, which looks at nature through contemporary art, will continue at the Kuntsi Museum of Modern Art when the museums are allowed to reopen their doors. The Ostrobothnian Museum and the Old Vaasa Museum would also reopen.
