Time Machines and Utopias: Wanderlust

The Gallen-Kallela Museum - Gallen-Kallelan tie 27

The Time Machines and Utopias is an exhibition series showcased in three museums in Tarvaspää, Ainola and Visavuori which explores the museums’ possibilities to operate in our changing society. The exhibition is based on the topical theme of climate change which will force us to re-think our day-to-day choices on food, travel and housing.  

The exhibition in Tarvaspää focuses on travel and transport. The artist Akseli Gallen-Kallela’s (1865–1931) travels across oceans and to virgin forests open new perspectives on the reasons for travel and wanderlust. The exhibition transports the audience from Tyrvää in the 1880s to New Mexico in the 1920s with a visit in Old Rauma and snow-covered Konginkangas. 

Exhibition invites us to reflect upon our relationship with travelling, mobility, and the experiences it affords us. The exploration is brought to life through contemporary art and soundscapes.  

The Finnish Cultural Foundation has funded the exhibition project under the Museum Vision grant.
