Navigating North – Works from the Wihuri Foundation Collection 

Art Direction and Book Design.

This book traces connections between north and south as the catalogue for the Navigating North exhibition, which presents highlights from the Jenny and Antti Wihuri Foundation Collection. Its guiding themes – landscape, northern nature and cultural creissroads – remind us that we exist in a state of perpetual change. This publication introduces a pick of works from the Wihuri Foundation Collection selected by Kiasma´s curators and, in addition, opens views to the history of northern Finnish art. The exhibition features works by 48 artists.
