    Elina Brotherus, Finnish artist working in photography, opens her three-part exhibition compilation, Space – Time – Movement, this October in Jyväskylä, Finland. This unprecedentedly extensive, themed exhibition trilogy presents a new series on Alvar Aalto’s architecture as well as work from periods throughout the artist’s whole career.

Jyväskylä - City of Culture

Jyväskylä is especially known for its rich variety of culture; museums, art exhibitions, concerts, events and theatre performances.

The festival-summer of the city begins with Jyväskylä Arts Festival, the oldest on-going cultural festival in the Nordic countries. The Alvar Aalto Symposium and Alvar Aalto Design Seminar, held at three-year intervals, bring hundreds of architects and designers from all over the world to Jyväskylä. Jyväskylä is the hometown of the world-famous architect Alvar Aalto and houses several buildings designed by him. The Alvar Aalto Museum familiarises the visitor with the life and work of this great talent.
