KulttuuriKauppila Art Centre is an active organiser of events such as workshops, exhibitions, artist meetings and master classes. The most important events are Art Ii Biennial and Valto Pernu Photo Marathon, organised on alternate years.
KulttuuriKauppila Art Centre offers you the opportunity to arrange exhibitions and project presentations in the project space of the studio building. Most of the exhibitions present the works of the resident artists. The exhibitions are free of charge. Welcome!
The people of Ii have the possibility of meeting international artists-in-residence in artist meetings open to all. In addition, the studios of the artists are open for the public a few times per year. During these open-studio hours, the studio artists as well as the artists-in-residence all present their studios and introduce their art.
Art Ii Biennial addresses current themes, participates in the public discussion through the methods of art and combines the cultural heritage of Ii with the contemporary art.
Valto Pernu Photo Marathon is a relaxed, open-for-all photography event combining art and documentary photography.
