Galleria Huuto

Eerikinkatu 36

Helsinki, Finland

Galleria Huuto is an artist run organisation in Helsinki, Finland, active since 2002, with more than 100 members. In August 2018 Huuto moved to the city center and now runs four gallery spaces in Eerikinkatu. Annually as many as 50 to 70 contemporary exhibitions are organised in Huuto's premises. Huuto functions as a platform for solo and group exhibitions covering the broad range of styles and media of contemporary art, as well as a space for international collaboration, non-commercial art, screenings, performance events and other artistic statements. Huuto is managed by a board and an executive director. Selection committee for exhibitions suggested for the gallery spaces is chosen from Huuto member artists and changes every half a year.

The Great Wheel of Fortune keeps on turning – come in, spin and win an exhibition opportunity, fame and glory, masterpieces by Huuto artists as well as by anonymous geniuses, lost and found art objects, words of wisdom or a shiny badge. When the game is art, everybody wins! Of the question of the taboos of today, we'd like to point at a defining one: Ownership - the one the art world also has trouble dealing with. Our booth will be a carnival space, dominated by a large Wheel of Fortune. Lotteries are arranged, where real as well as fictional pieces of art can be won, pointing critically at the conventions of ownership, authority and originality.
