Inside their own heads
The guest artists at Loviisa have followed their own plans of artwork and possible given lectures and exhibitions. Most of them have returned home very well satisfied, with a stack of new works and their pockets full of constructive criticism and other feedback. However, the most important that the artists take home something are inside their own heads. Impressions and memories from an exchange can live on in an artist´s work for the rest of his career and even persist after life from generation to generation in the collections of arts, museums, galleries, universitys, auction houses and at last in folklore.
Without the open minds and suppors of the cooperation partners open minds, project would not have been realized. Thanks to the following co-operatives:
The City of Loviisa, Ministry of Education and Culture, The Arts Promotion Centre Finland, The Swedish Cultural Foundation in Finland, The Kone Foundation and Loviisa Contemporary for long-term cooperation and supported the Loviisa Artists’ Studio activities.
