The Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma in Helsinki, Finland celebrates its 10-year anniversary with the exhibition Fluid Street-Alone, Together. Art21 artists Jennifer Allora & Guillermo Calzadilla (Season 4) are included along with fifteen other artists who use the streets of Madrid, Istanbul, Vienna, São Paulo, Copenhagen, New York, Berlin and other locations as subject, backdrop, material and/or live setting.

Kiasma’s anniversary year aims to provide the public with personal experiences. In Kiasma Magazine, Director Berndt Arell, says:
“People always experience art on a personal level even though in some fields of art, it is possible to arrange for several people to have the experience simultaneously. Since we can’t build individual exhibitions for each single visitor, we endeavour to build a wider ranging exhibition so that as many people as possible find something that touches them personally.”
Performances, events and interventions will take place in the Museum’s theatre, on surrounding streets, and elsewhere in the city over the course of the exhibition. Fluid Street closes on September 21, 2008.
