ÄKKIGALLERIA

ÄKKIGALLERIA. Jyväskylä, Finland

Äkkigalleria is an artist-run, non-profit, nomadic exhibition space that appears spontaneously when appropriate locations become available. Our intention is to provide an “artists first” platform for a commixture of artists to show new work. Äkkigalleria was established in 2009, with the intension of mobilizing the visual arts into happenings and events; to offer alternative venues for sharing visual arts; to provide live, cultural and social activities for the residents of Jyväskylä; to support local and emerging artists; to activate vacant spaces; and to instigate exchange between artists and artistic disciplines. We strive to promote creative risk taking, to find new and imaginative ways to bring art to different public spheres by usurping existing spaces.
