Exhibition: The Posture of Impermanence
The LAPS 20 exhibition will be opened in 11 November 2021, and it will be organised in collaboration with Vantaa Art Museum Artsi. The exhibition, titled The Posture of Impermanence (Huokoinen ele in Finnish), presents a wide variety of live art and performance art and future prospects for the fields through artworks and performances by LAPS students and contemporary artists.
A book release is also scheduled for November, and the publication will not only describe the twists and turns in the LAPS Programme’s journey over the years, but also live art and performance art in Finland of the 2000s and 2010s in general. The book will be released as a joint publication with Vantaa Art Museum in Uniarts Helsinki’s Episodi series in 12 November.
