Organised by friends of Erkki Pirtola
With this event we want to pay tribute to the late Erkki Pirtola, visual performance artist, video documentarist of countless art happenings, relentless discoverer of ITE artists, art critic and rebel with a great heart. To celebrate the profound impact he had on cultural life in Finland, we want to involve as many of his artist friends as possible. Together we hope to create a memorial happening that breathes in the spirit of Erkki, going against the flow.
The event will start at 20:00 ON SATURDAY 11 MARCH 2017.
Mad Bar will open at 18:00. Entrance is free.
The artists involved will present solo or simultaneous performances,
poetry, visual and sound art actions in the space of TIIVISTÄMÖ
(building 5), Suvilahti, Helsinki.
