Tatu Tuominen invited in Aalto University’s School of Business building staircase art competition
New artwork will be located in the newest building on campus.
The invited art competition seeks to find exceptional and feasible proposals for artworks to be
situated in three staircase spaces at the School of Business building in Otaniemi, Espoo. Five artists and artist groups were invited to take part in the competition: IC 98, Pekka Paikkari, Riikka Puranen, Praneet Soi and Tatu Tuominen.
‘Art is an intrinsic part of our built environment at Aalto University. We encounter and experience art in diverse locations including indoor and outdoor public spaces, but also in more private spaces such as offices and meeting rooms,’ sanoo Anna Valtonen, Aalto University’s Vice President for Arts of Creative Practices.
Successful proposals will follow the art concept of the School of Business and the vision of public art at Aalto University. The competitors may suggest art works to either one or three staircases. Deadline for proposals is 30 April 2019 and the results of the competition will be published in May 2019.
