In addition to all the street art around Itä-Pasila district, we now bring art also indoors in Pasila Urban Art Center, which hosts a different kind of 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.

CURRENT EXHIBITION

Sergei Stroitelev

The Color of Violence

November 6 — 30

The Color of Violence is a project by the photographer Sergei Stroitelev that tells the story of migrants and refugees who have been attacked out of racial hatred – from being ‘accidentally’ shoved on public transport to serious injury and even murder.

Investigating the subject of xenophobia and telling the stories of victims of violence, the artist brings the audience into the space of ‘moral crossroads,’ putting before them the question of the cause and effect of such phenomena.

Sergei Stroitelev works with the world’s leading publications and charity organizations. He is the laureate of international and Russian contests, among them the Istanbul Photo Awards 2018 (Daily Life category) and the Debuts 2018 Photocontest.

Opening wednesday 6.11.2019 at 18-20. Facebook event of the exhibition.
