AT MUSEUM GUSTAF
In the exhibition, the history and theory on Western fine art inspire action and produce experiences. After an introduction, you can build the various elements into your own landscape, adapting the style trends of art history.
The introduction leads the visitors into the history of Western landscape painting which emerged as an independent trend at the beginning of the new era in the 15th century. The image gallery of the exhibition presents classical landscape paintings from different centuries.
Emphasis on the landscape paintings is culture-based. Also our way of experiencing the landscape has changed in the course of time. The exhibition explains why different landscapes were painted at different times.
Exhibition Landscape is based on the interaction of the guide and the group and it offers interesting viewpoints to visitors of all age groups. Also individual visitors can get involved in action and experience.
Director Pauli Sivonen of the Serlachius Museums has planned the exhibition contents. Scenographer Tarja Väätänen is responsible for the exhibition's visual design and Päivi Nieppola, senior curator of education, is responsible for the pedagogic dimension.
