Gallery kajaste is a contemporary art oriented art gallery in Oulu, founded in the spring 2012. The gallery premises in the historical Tuomi-talo building are beautiful, spacious and full of light, located right in the city centre of Oulu, in Kajaaninkatu 25.
Gallery kajaste opened second gallery in Helsinki on Bulevardi 32 (entrance from Albertinkatu).
The meaning of the existence of a gallery comes only from enabling the interplay between the artist’s artwork and the audience. An artwork itself has always its absolute value. A piece of art has come into existence from and inside the significant and unique interaction between the artist’s life context and the intrinsic life of the artist herself/himself. The precious chain of interaction between the artwork and the audience can only be preserved if the art is exhibited; to spark conversation, raise questions, awake feelings and affections, to thrill and fascinate – and to give the audience an unique experience of their own. At best, the exhibition will leave the visitor with a thought that will again arise something dawning new: a feeling, an idea, a perspective or questioning.
We want to enable good accessibility for the audience by the gallery opening hours at evenings.
Free entrance! Warmly welcome!
