In addition to all the street art around Itä-Pasila district, we now bring art also indoors in Pasila Urban Art Center, a host for various exhibitions, workshops and events.

In our center we have for example changing exhibitions, books about street art, workshops, movie nights (if you have an idea about an event or activity, don’t hesitate to tell us!). Pasila Urban Art Center (in Finnish Pasilan kaupunkitaidekeskus) also has a workshop room for graffiti and street art workshops. Art also spreads to the areas around Pasila, which has turned into a real street art district.

Pasila Urban Art hosts also different kind of exhibitions dedicated to urban art. The exhibitions change approximately every 6 weeks. The exhibitions are open during the opening hours of Pasila Urban Art Center (Thu & Fri 12–18, Sat 13–16).

Pasila City Art Center is located at Kasöörinkatu 3 lh 4. Access is from the courtyard of the house.

Pasila Urban Art Center is supported by Finnish Cultural Foundation and Kuluttajaosuustoiminnan säätiö.

 

CURRENT EXHIBITION

G-Rex
1.7.–1.8.2020

Street art guild G-Rex brings street art indoors for the whole of July.

The exhibition consists of art works from 8 different artists. The pieces together form a delightful and beautiful artistic whole. Each artist has been working independently to create art characteristic to their styles, and there will be a versatile selection of art in the exhibition. The common thread of the exhibition is its theme, “taking over the space”, as well as the color palette: one can admire the bright and beautiful summery shades.

Artists:

Minttu Pyykkönen
Terhi Ekebom
Julia Sand
Maria Björklund
Miila Westin
Anetta Lukjanova
Yasmin May Jaafar
Kirsi-Maria Raunio

A cozy terrace with flowers and padded couches was built right outside the gallery. The terrace is part of the exhibition but it will remain in its place for the whole summer even after the exhibition has ended.

The exhibition is open Thu-Fri 12pm–6pm and Sat 1pm–4pm.

With the exhibition, a permanent print section has opened at Pasila Urban Art Center, which sells prints by Finnish and international street artists.
