Encouraging collections mobility : a way forward for museums in Europe( Book )

10 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Information about the history of collecting and suggestions for different ways to approach museum collections and related activities. It proposes that museums should rather be encouraged to build collection strategies of the 21st century than repeating the old pattern that is based on the idea of eternal growth. Whereas most of the articles provide a philosophical context for the collections and their use, the book also addresses the practical issues concerning collections mobility, such as immunity from seizure, insurances, non-insurances and state indemnities, long-term loans, loan fees, and digitisation. It is also pointed out that standards, trust, and good networking form the basis for all co-operation. Survey of current good practice in developing loans procedures and tips for museum professionals who are determined to explore and research collections in order to open our rich collection resources and learn more about European heritage
Stories of Finnish art by Susanna Pettersson( Book )

7 editions published in 2016 in 3 languages and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Ateneum Art Museum -- the most frequently visited museum in the country -- holds Finland's oldest and largest art collection. This new beautifully illustrated book looks at the collection through a social lens, addressing how historical and political events have influenced art and artists as well as museum work and acquisitions for the collection. Starting with the year 1809, the storylines run through to the nineteen-seventies, additionally highlighting the Ateneum building itself as the center of the Finnish art scene for the last 127 years, housing not only vibrant artworks but also two significant art schools. The catalogue offers readers sixteen newly commissioned thematic articles written by museum specialists along with five short stories by contemporary Finnish authors"--Page 4 of cover
John Singer Sargent by John Singer Sargent( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The American painter John Singer Sargent's (1856-1925) world of images is full of contrasts. The technically brilliant Sargent had an impressive international career, especially with his elegant portraits of personalities from the upper echelons of international high society, but there are also several lesser-known yet interesting sides to his oeuvre. This exhibition marks the first extensive presentation of Sargent's work in the Nordic region. Sargent may have been of American parentage, but most of all he was a cosmopolitan: born in Florence, he studied in Paris, lived in London and travelled around the world. His friends and acquaintances included his Nordic contemporaries Anders Zorn and Albert Edelfelt and there are many parallels between their careers. Sargent's artistic production was extensive; estimated at over 900 paintings and twice as many watercolours. Exhibition: Nationalmuseum, Stockholm, Sweden (13.10.2018-13.01.2019)

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Swiss-born Not Vital (born 1948), who started his career in the 1960s, is known as a versatile artist who boldly expresses his ideas through sculptures, large-scale installations and collages. The exhibition at the Ateneum will present a series of Vital's recent paintings. In his paintings, Vital delves into the deepest layers of humanity, by wiping off all the excess on the surface. The artist's works feature his mother, assistants, and artist friends, as well as powerful figures familiar from literature.

Ola Kolehmainen : geometric light : Fotografie und Architektur by Ola Kolehmainen( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in German and English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der finnische Künstler Ola Kolehmainen begibt sich in seinem fotografischen Werk auf die Spuren großer Architekten. Bauwerke der europäischen Moderne von Alvar Aalto, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Frank O. Gehry und Sauerbruch Hutton, aber auch sakrale Bauwerke der Kunstgeschichte, wie die Hagia Sophia oder osmanische Moscheen von Mimar Sinan aus dem 16. Jahrhundert, dienen ihm als Ausgangspunkt seiner Reflexionen. 0Nach einem langwierigen Arbeitsprozess, in dem Kolehmainen die Vita des Architekten, die Rolle des spezifischen Gebäudes in dessen Werk sowie dessen Wirkung auf andere Architekten genau studiert hat, löst er seine fotografische Arbeit vom Vorbild und findet zu übergeordneten Ergebnissen, hinter denen die Frage steht: Was sehen wir? Was sieht die Kamera? Was ist wirklich? Seine Reduktionen führen zu menschenleeren Bildern voll Ruhe und Eleganz.0Exhibition: Haus am Waldsee, Berlin, Germany (5.4.-17.5.2014).0
Adel Abidin : history wipes by Adel Abidin( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adel Abidin (born 1973 in Baghdad, Iraq) is an internationally renowned contemporary artist, residing between Helsinki, Finland, and Amman, Jordania. This exhibition catalogue is published in conjunction with Abidin's major solo show at Ateneum Art Museum in 2018. Abidin's work is characterised by a strong social ethos. Through his art, he deals with difficult topics, such as identity, discrimination, war, history and its manipulation. He is often using light humour and sarcasm, but in the end, his works come across as profound, serious and even gloomy. In 'History Wipes', Adel Abidin challenges us to look at our memories and their ambiguity. Exhibition: Ateneum Art Museum, Helsinki, Finland (14.03.-22.04.2018)
