Galleria Huuto

Galleria Huuto is an artist-run organization in Helsinki, active since 2002, with more than 140 members. In the spring 2023 Huuto moved to Kalasatama, and now runs four gallery spaces in Eerikinkatu. Huuto functions as a platform for contemporary art exhibitions, collaborations, screenings, and events. Huuto is managed by a board and an executive director. Selection committee for the upcoming exhibitions 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.
