About Huuto Alphabet

There are 29 letters in the Finnish Alphabet.

The Huuto Alphabet exhibition displays a collection of artworks from 29 artists who are all members of the artist-run-space Galleria Huuto. The works are displayed in alphabetical order according to their titles, thus together they form a kind of alphabet of varied mediums.

All the artists contributing to this series of works were found via an open call to the members of the gallery. They were selected in the order in which they applied. No separate judging or curatorial means were used. The artists also had the freedom to choose their medium and style. The only limitation was the size of the works in that they were not to be larger than 30 cm x 30 cm x 30 cm. The Huuto Alphabet exhibition represents a variety of contemporary art mediums: photography, painting, sculpture, mixed media, drawing, text and video. Some of the works were made especially for this series, while others were already completed works.

The idea for this exhibition was born out of wondering how Galleria Huuto could celebrate its 10th anniversary at the Supermarket Alternative Art Fair 2013 which took place in Stockholm earlier this year. The thematic structure as well as the size of the works made it possible to exhibit a large yet approachable group show at the fair. Additionally, we wanted the series to live on after the fair and therefore we decided to publish a website presenting the Huuto Alphabet exhibition.

The series is now on display at the gallery.
We hope you have an enjoyable experience.
