Saturday 2 December from 15–19
For more than 10 years, the non-profit association Catalysti Ry has created exhibition opportunities for transcultural artists in Finland. This year’s Annual Exhibition is an experiment—welcome to celebrate Catalysti’s inaugural Art Lottery event!
All are welcome to join us in celebrating the participating artists:
Catarina Neves Ricci
Juliana Irene Smith
While it’s only these members who will participate in the art-swap lottery, we invite everyone in the extended Catalysti community (and beyond) to join us to celebrate, socialise, share some glögi, and taste some transcultural Christmas porridge. The drawing of the lottery will take place around 17pm, then please hang around to enjoy tunes by DJ PJ.
Why a lottery?
The aim for this year’s Catalysti annual exhibition is to profile and uplift as many of the association’s 250 members as possible through exhibiting and documenting their works, while connecting them with like-minded peers in a warm and celebratory social environment. Through this, we also seek to experiment with rethinking and proposing alternative exhibition practices that can be actualised with limited resources.
Being an artist often means being in competition with your peers. Everyone is forced to apply and compete for open calls, residencies, grants, and exhibition opportunities. We didn’t want to reinforce this competitive spirit, so we’re testing if the lottery could be a different way to make an exhibition for a membership organisation. And in this way, all members have the opportunity to receive an artwork gift, while being recognised and celebrated by their peers.

It is possible to access Outo olo by wheelchair with assistance, but the door opening is only 67 cm wide. The entrance has two steps, for which a movable ramp is available. We will help with the ramp. Please feel free to contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org to share particular needs—we will do our best to accommodate them.
The toilet is small, and there are two steps to get there. It is possible to visit an accessible toilet at Solmu pub across the road.
