Loving Women

Edith Hammar, Ester Helenius, Emma Helle, Marie Høeg, Tove Jansson

Loving Women is an exhibition about love between women. It is an immersive mixture that opens up views into a bygone age, while at the same time rewriting history from a queer perspective. This encounter between contemporary art and historical art adds to our understanding of identities and sexualities.

The exhibition has been curated by Juha-Heikki Tihinen, PhD.

The Pro Artibus Foundation’s collection consists of more than 1300 artworks

The majority of the works are modern and contemporary art by Finnish-Swedish artists. The oldest works date back to the start of the 20th century, as the collection is based on the art that the Swedish Cultural Foundation in Finland began acquiring in 1957. The collection is constantly being augmented with contemporary art.
