Albright-Knox Members are invited to attend a Members’ Opening for the new special exhibition Eija-Liisa Ahtila: Ecologies of Drama.
In conjunction with FinnFest USA 2015 in Buffalo, the Albright-Knox presents a uniquely beautiful and immersive exhibition of the works of Eija-Liisa Ahtila. This is the first United States–based career survey of the work of this pioneering Finnish artist, photographer, and storyteller who, for more than twenty years, has been at the forefront of moving-image installation.
Finnish jazz guitarist Olli Hirvonen will perform during the opening celebration. Hirvonen was chosen as the Artist of the Year of the Pori International Jazz Festival in 2011.
A free public opening of Eija-Liisa Ahtila: Ecologies of Drama will follow from 7 to 9 pm. At 7:15 pm, join us for Emerging Voices in Contemporary Art: Eija-Liisa Ahtila in Conversation with Janne Sirén and Cathleen Chaffee.
