Research Pavilion

Fine arts, concerts, performances, workshops and discussions with an inquiring mindset – every two years, the Uniarts Helsinki Research Pavilion showcases what artistic research is all about.

Research Pavilion #4: Helsinki

Previously arranged in connection with the Venice Biennale, this time the Pavilion gathered artist-researchers to Hietsu in Helsinki 5 June – 29 August 2021. Uniarts Helsinki’s fourth Research Pavilion was organised with the support of the Louise and Göran Ehrnrooth Foundation and it was a part of the Year of research-based knowledge.

Previous Research Pavilions

In 2015, 2017 and 2019, Uniarts Helsinki hosted the Research Pavilion in the context of the Venice Biennale, one of the world’s most prestigious forums for contemporary art. The fourth Research Pavilion was organised in Helsinki in summer 2021 during the first-ever Helsinki Biennial.
