The Kuvan Kevät MFA degree show 2019 will be held in Helsinki from May 4 to June 2. This year´s MFA Degree Show showcases works by 51 emerging artists who are about to receive their MFA degrees. The works exhibited in Kuvan Kevät are presented at the galleries of the Academy of Fine Arts in the centre of Helsinki, the Exhibition Laboratory and the Project Room as well as a temporary exhibition space next door to the Exhibition Laboratory. The exhibition also includes a screening programme shown at Cinema Orion, which includes a feature film and video works by four artists. Furthermore, the National Museum of Finland will open its tower for public – and for contemporary art – as it becomes the venue for a curated set of video works.
The Master’s students participating in the exhibition represent all subject areas at the Academy of Fine Arts of Uniarts Helsinki: Sculpture, Painting, Printmaking, Time and Space Arts and Praxis Master’s Programme.
