OAF is pleased to collaborate with Pertti's Choice Outsider Art Gallery and Donkey Hotel Studio to present Inside Outside Finland, a VR (virtual reality) exhibition of Outsider Art from Finland, its past and present shown through interactive 360° videos at the Ace Hotel New York.
Finnish contemporary artists Jani Leinonen will guide participants through a virtual tour of Finland's unique and often outlying art environments such as Enni Id’s artist residence in Padasjoki and Veijo Rönkkönen’s magical Statue Park in Parikkala. Viewers will then virtually experience a live performance by Kalevi Helvetti in a Helsinki punk club, and tour the studio of Helsinki's Blue Circus Collective.
Each of the four visits are approximately 7 minutes long, and will be hosted IRL (in real life) by one of the artists, Kalevi Helvetti, who will also entertain guests with Finnish ghost stories and draw their instant portraits onsite.
This event is free but attendance is limited and RSVP is required.
