Main Hall 2 June – 27 September 2020
Sculptor Radoslaw Gryta’s multi-material sculptures, which serve as commentary on history, often explore craftmanship, the artist’s personal story and the recent history of Poland, his country of birth. Gryta’s works investigate the past on a general level but also through the artist’s personal memories.
Radoslaw Gryta (b. 1955) has realised several public sculptures in Finland and Poland. He received the State Award for Arts in 1989. He has also forged a long career as a teacher at Imatra Art School and the Academy of Fine Arts at the University of the Arts in Helsinki.

Emma Ainala: He's cute and all but like, he didn't even know who Beethoven was.., 2019
The detailed and rich paintings by visual artist Emma Ainala are brimming with references to pop culture, the world of social media and art history. Ainala’s works of art combine candy colours with earthy tones, and their topics strike a balance between beauty and terror.
Emma Ainala (b. 1989) graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts at the University of the Arts in 2013. Her art has been exhibited at numerous Finnish art museums and at the Helsinki Contemporary gallery. Several art museums in Finland have acquired her works in their collections.
Taidelabra – Art Lab
See, experience and experiment!
The Art Lab is a new, interactive exhibition space that combines a learning environment and the Hyvinkää Art Museum’s permanent
art collection. Multi-sensory experiences, digital applications, experimentation, and hands-on activities form the heart of the Art Lab.
Five very different rooms and works from the collection of Hyvinkää Art Museum form an entity called Taidelabra – Art Lab. Art Lab offers visitors the opportunity to question and be surprised, or even confused.
Art and labs are two very different things, but in the Art Lab they come together. What is art? It consists of playing, experiencing, using all senses, finding new perspectives and making discoveries. A lab is a place for hands-on experiences, experiments and
exploration, not white coats and test tubes. It is a place where you can touch, listen and be surprised. Or you can just sit, watch and study the works without any rush.
