Galleria Huuto is an artist-run organization in Helsinki, 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. 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.

Three Huuto artists featured at Supermarket 2021: Kaarina Haka, Miia Rinne and Kirsti Tuokko. They make an installation in which material and immaterial worlds are present at the same time and as equals. Kaarina Haka experiments with organza and tulle. The materials find their form through trying and often by chance. Haka focuses more on the work as a whole rather than on specific details and wants to maintain a feeling of incompleteness and unfinishedness. Miia Rinne shows New Worm. It is the 6th part of her long-term work, in which she combines painted film and video fragments (2008-2021). In New Worm, things merge, collide, and infiltrate. Kirsti Tuokko paints outfits and posing. She paints the way we present ourselves. Her figures are from fashion magazines, streets and cafés. Each figure also includes something of herself.
