ANTI - Contemporary Art Festival

works with innovative artists on projects that explore and explode urban space. The next festival will take place between 19th and 24th September 2017.

 

ANTI began life in 2002. Since then we’ve produce 15 editions of ANTI – Contemporary Art Festival and have established a year-round programme of artist residencies and cultural projects and events.
In 2014 we established the ANTI Festival International Prize for Live Art,
one Finland’s richest cultural prizes.

 Held annually in Kuopio, Finland, the city hosts the festival, projects by artists from around the world inhabit the spaces of public life – homes, shops, city squares, business, forests, lakes – and directly engage
communities and audiences in the making and showing of their work. The festival is free to attend.

We’ve presented and commissioned some of the world’s most exciting artists from USA, Australia, Mexico, Japan and Europe along with leading artists from Finland, Sweden, Norway and Iceland. We’re proud to support an ever-growing generation of emerging artists, often presenting artists internationally for the first time.
