Museum of Cultures

The National Museum of Finland, Mannerheimintie 34, Helsinki


The Arctic Spirit – New exhibition in the pop-up facility of the National Museum of Finland

The exhibition, opened in March, reflects the continuity and change of the cultures and life situations of Arctic indigenous peoples. The exhibition presents a collection of modern artists representing the Arctic peoples, focusing and commenting on both traditional and modern topics.

Artefacts from the old collections of the Museum of Cultures (Alaska, Greenland) are also showcased alongside works of art. The Arctic Spirit guides people to take an interest in big questions, such as the changes in nature and life situations. Since the 19th century, external circumstances have accelerated the changes in the ways of life and cultures of people in the Arctic, and today, climate change is also rapidly changing the environment. The melting of glaciers and permafrost affect not only the Arctic regions, but also the entire globe.

The exhibition is open in the pop-up facility of the National Museum of Finland from 3 March to 27 August 2017.
