Kunsthalle Helsinki

Kunsthalle Helsinki[1] (Finnish: Helsingin Taidehalli, Swedish: Helsingfors Konsthall) is an art exhibition venue in the Etu-Töölö district of Helsinki, Finland. The Kunsthalle doesn't have own collections but hosts 7–8 major exhibitions a year from outside collections, focusing mainly on contemporary art but also featuring design and architecture exhibitions.[1] It is owned by a private foundation and supported by the City of Helsinki and the Ministry of Education, receiving about one-fourth of its annual budget as public subsidies.[1]

The Kunsthalle building was designed by Hilding Ekelund and Jarl Eklund. Completed in 1928, the building is a prime example of Nordic Classicism in Finland.[2] The building has been renovated several times and the latest major refurbishment was completed in 2009.[3]
