A new artist-run space will start in Helsinki. Named Outo olo (Strange feeling), it will open on Vaasankatu in the former premises of Sorbus gallery. The program will start in August 2020, and continue until February 2021. During that period, four artist duos will be operating in the space: Biitsi, Hello dust, Iiris Kaarlehto and Inka Kynkäänniemi, Lukas Malte Hoffmann and Susan Kooi. They will use the space for presenting their own artworks, curating other artists, and for working.
Outo olo wants to provide a platform for self-motivated artist-initiated activities in the inner city of Helsinki, and outline new ways for presenting art.
