Artwork loans


Gösta Serlachius Fine Arts Foundation lends its collection works to exhibition organizers, who are able to guarantee the safety of the works with professional staff and in properly supervised premises under controlled conditions.

Send loan requests in time

Due to conservation work focusing on Fine Art Foundation’s own collection, Serlachius Museums’ borrowing operations will be restricted during the time period of 2021–22. Mainly, we lend only works in sound lending condition, which are not on show in our own exhibitions. Please, send carefully reasoned and deliberated loan requests in good time so that we have time to process them.

Written loan requests may be send to Pauli Sivonen, Director of the museum:, tel. +358 (0)50 566 1355.
Curator Tomi Moisio is our contact person in arrangements regarding artwork loans:, tel. +358 (0)40 681 7455

Written loan requests shall be required in large or international projects no later than 12 months before the start of the loan period. In smaller requests (less than 5 artworks) for domestic projects, loan requests shall be required 4 months before the start of the loan period.
