For groups we recommend touring the exhibitions under the guidance of the guide. Pre-ordered guided tours will be organized in the time that you wish. We will be happy to tailor a tour to your group.
For guided tours, the ideal size is 25 people, for larger groups we recommend two guides. There is a lot to see in the museum, so after the guided tour you should also book some time to explore the museum.
My exhibition deals with the purpose and distribution of information. I continuously come across different deliberate misrepresentations of information, in various situations, which is sometimes so distorted that it almost becomes transparent. Distorted or deliberately altered forms of information can be found in all different kinds of situations from the news to letters to the editor.
Tommi Toija’s mystic but delicately sweet ceramic figures, Strangers, cover the floor of the main gallery at the Jyväskylä Art Museum. Standing in the midst of these ceramic figures the viewer is forced to ponder their relationship with themselves and with others, individually and as a society. We are softly reminded of the fundamental questions of existence raised by Paul Gauguin in his 1897 painting Where do we come from? Who are we? Where are we going?
