COVID-19 Update from Backlight2020

Photographic Centre Nykyaika, Tampere Art Museum, Gallery Himmelblau and Cultural House Laikku are all closed from 17th March until 13th April 2020 according to the decision of the Finnish government. This action is taken to prevent the spreading of the coronavirus.

Our Backlight2020 staff in Tampere will be working remotely and continuing to produce Space Works, Related Realities and Visual Catalysts exhibitions. In the light of the current situation it is unfortunately possible that we have to postpone or even cancel some of Backlight exhibitions. 

We will monitor the COVID-19 epidemic situation closely. Updates and changes in exhibition programmes and schedules can be found on our website and social media channels. We will be checking emails and will keep in touch. 

We wish you all good health and safety!
