The exhibition year 2018 was, like the previous one, active and international: the contemporary artist Ulla Karttunen participated in numerous exhibitions and art projects, mostly abroad.

The year started at Artium Miami Art Gallery, in Wynwood art district in Miami, where the exhibition Confluences displayed the winners of the international art competition. The book Art and the Challenge of Markets (Palgrave Macmillan) was published in January in London; Donna Criminale by Ulla Karttunen was the cover art work in both volumes of the book.

In Helsinki, Bela Biennial of European and Latinamerican Art had a big show at The Cable Factory.

The contemporary art show Lethes Art was open from the beginning of July until the end of September in different historical buildings of Ponte de Lima, Portugal – Ulla Karttunen constructed there a 5-metre high altarpiece-installation to a church in the old town. In Cremona, Italy, Galleria Immagini Spazio Arte gathered European contemporary artists with different mediums to its exhibition Artisti Europei.

In the autumn there was an art invasion to an underground station in Los Angeles: Art Below Los Angeles was exhibited at both Grand Union Station and Foshay Masonic Lodge. In Helsinki, The Artists’ Association of Helsinki organised its Autumn Salon at Kanneltalo Gallery. In December five artists’ group exhibition The Manifesto of Stillness opened at the Hyvinkää Art Museum, with also Donna Criminale, the hanged patron saint for the poor and the socially excluded.

Näyttelyvuosi 2018 oli edellisvuoden tavoin aktiivinen ja kansainvälinen: kuvataiteilija Ulla Karttunen osallistui lukuisiin näyttelyprojekteihin, joista useimmat olivat ulkomailla.

Vuosi alkoi Miamin Artium -galleriassa, jonka Confluences-näyttelyssä oli esillä kansainvälisen taidekilpailun voittajien töitä. Tammikuussa myös julkaistiin Lontoossa ’Art and the Challenge of Markets’ -kirja (Palgrave Macmillan), jonka molempien osien kansikuvana oli Karttusen teos Donna Criminale. Armory-taideviikoilla maaliskuisessa New Yorkissa oli esillä Artbox-projekti Stricoff-galleriassa.

Los Angelesin digitaalisen taiteen keskuksessa Lacdassa avautui sähköistä taidetta kokoava Electron Salon -näyttely. Art Below Summer Show tapahtui sekä Hyde Park Corner -metroaseman suurmainostauluissa että The Herrick Galleryssä Lontoon Piccadillyllä. Kaapelitehtaalla Helsingissä oli esillä eurooppalaisen ja latinalaisamerikkalaisen taiteen Bela-biennaali.

Portugalin Ponte de Limassa heinäkuun alusta syyskuun loppuun avoinna olleeseen Lethes Art -näyttelytapahtumaan Karttunen pystytti vanhan kaupungin keskustan kirkkoon 5 metriä korkean alttaritauluinstallaation. Italian Cremonassa Galleria Immagini Spazio Arte kokosi Artisti Europei -näyttelyynsä eri tekniikoita käyttäviä eurooppalaisia taiteilijoita.

Syksyllä oli vuorossa taideinvaasio losangelesilaiselle metroasemalle, eli Art Below Los Angeles, esityspaikkoina noin 110.000 päivittäisen matkustajan Grand Union Station ja Foshay Masonic Lodge. Helsingissä Kanneltalon galleriassa järjestettiin Helsingin Taiteilijaseuran Syyssalonki. Joulukuussa avautui viiden taiteilijan Hiljaisuuden manifesti –näyttely Hyvinkään Taidemuseossa ja mukana on myös ulossuljettujen, köyhien ja hädänalaisten hirtetty suojeluspyhimys Donna Criminale.

The exhibition opens in Grand Union Station the 29th October and stays there two weeks. This underground station is California’s largest and busiest station and serves almost 110.000 passengers a day. It is known as ‘America’s last great railway station’.

The gallery editions of the works are exhibited in the Culver Masonic Lodge, Los Angeles, where the opening with a special Halloween Art Party is held on 31st October.

Last year, in the first show by Art Below in Grand Union Station, Los Angeles, the wellknown British artist Anish Kapoor displayed a protest artwork criticizing president Donald Trump’s immigration politics. The work titled ’I Like America and America Doesn’t Like Me’ was inspired by the famous piece by Joseph Beuys, ’I Like America and America Likes Me’.
