Kohta’s curated public programme of exhibitions and events aims to consistently reflect the complexity and capacity of visual art today and its futures-oriented potential.
Kohta brings together contemporary artists from Finland and the rest of the world in solo and group exhibitions. Our mission is to feature artistic thinking in its many forms and showcase artists from different generations and media.
Kohta’s exhibition programme consists of 5 exhibitions a year. The programme is designed by the Kohta Council. In addition to the exhibition programme we organise events, such as screenings and talks, with the aim to create fruitful dialogue around and about contemporary art and connect the dots between different art forms.
Kohta’s programme is usually decided a few years in advance, and we are rarely able to accommodate unsolicited suggestions for exhibitions.
Kohta is located in the rapidly developing Kalasatama neighborhood, on the top floor of a 1980s industrial building. We have around 160 square meters of exhibition space, divided into a main space and a studio space.
