In picture books and animations visual expressions are as important and meaningful as texts. Finnish illustrators create new pictures for children every day. The legacy of Tove Jansson is still alive, but at the same time today’s illustrators form a new generation of image creators. This exhibition, aiming at a playful dialogue with the visitor, highlights nine Finnish illustrators. In BY, the visitor may step into the world of Finnish illustration at its best! The exhibition begins its international tour in association with the Frankfurt Book Fair, where Finland will be the theme country in 2014.
Artists: Malin Ahlsved, Linda Bondestam, Lena Frölander-Ulf, Anna Härmälä, Maija Hurme, Veronica Lassenius, Åsa Lucander, Christel Rönns och Kasper Strömman.
