The exhibition is the second part of EMMA’s series In Search of the Present, which began in 2016. Its title refers to Finnish author Olavi Paavolainen’s collection of essays (1929), which explores the experiences and identities of modern humans in a rapidly changing time. EMMA’s overall theme for 2022 is Crystal Ball. The artists of In Search of the Present examine the essence of our time in a visionary, experimental and bold way.
In Search of the Present is on view from 27 August 2022 to 15 January 2023, at the Espoo Museum of Modern Art – EMMA, in Helsinki, (FI).
