Galleria Huuto

Helsinki, Finland

Galleria Huuto is an artist run organisation in Helsinki, Finland, active since 2002, with more than 100 members. In August 2018 Huuto moved to the city center and now runs four gallery spaces in Eerikinkatu. Annually as many as 50 to 70 contemporary exhibitions are organised in Huuto's premises. Huuto functions as a platform for solo and group exhibitions covering the broad range of styles and media of contemporary art, as well as a space for international collaboration, non-commercial art, screenings, performance events and other artistic statements. Huuto is managed by a board and an executive director. Selection committee for exhibitions suggested for the gallery spaces is chosen from Huuto member artists and changes every half a year.

Galleria Huuto is an independent artists' collective with 88 members based in Helsinki, Finland. Currently Huuto maintains two galleries and can also be realized elsewhere in form of various events, projects and visits. Huuto was founded in 2002 and it organises annually as many as 35-50 contemporary art exhibitions.

As an organization Huuto is focused on promoting interaction among artists, creating new institutional practices in art and offering a platform for individual artists. To work within Huuto requires merely an interest for constructive collaboration with other artists.

This year at Supermarket, Galleria Huuto stages Niina Lehtonen Braun’s installation Mother Said and a video selection Greetings from Another Side presenting works by Pasi Autio, Maija Blåfield, Niina Lehtonen Braun, Mikko Kuorinki, Johanna Lecklin, and Miia Rinne.
