ANTI - Contemporary Art Festival
ANTI – Contemporary Art Festival, in its eighth year, took place on 23rd to 27th September 2009 in Kuopio. The festival that focuses on site-specific art brought the city to life over the course of five days. ANTI-festival attracted a lot of media attention and the largest audience in its history, 7500 people. The art works that spread themselves around the Kuopio urban environment and public spaces stirred up a lot of discussion, delight and reflection. For the very first time, ANTI-festival works were taken to the provinces and some could be observed online.
