Contemporary Art Exhibitions



The 2019 theme of the contemporary art exhibition of the World of Tango Festival is feminism and feminity in concepts, thinking and action. Modern feminism does not only cover the gender issue but also a wider movement toward equality which questions all unequalizing hierarchies and classifications by ethnicity, sexuality or age. Thus, the focus is not only on the power relations between men and women but on the power relations overall. It asks whether we can ever achieve equality without first recognizing all unequalizing forms of oppression.

The curator of this year’s contemporary art exhibition, Veera Salmio is an artist from Tampere. She has wielded a wide range of art forms in her work, including sculpture, installation, photography and video art. She graduated from the art school of Tampere University of Applied Sciences in 2015. 

The exhibition opening is held on Saturday August 31 at 18-22hs at Pispala Contemporary Art Center Hirvitalo, Hirvikatu 10 Tampere.
