Kosti Koskinen – The Diary of a Man in the Street opens 23.2.

It presents the man behind his work, with all of the joys and sorrows, as well as a multi-skilled, immensely prolific and tireless artist, who never gave up. The young artists Taavi Heikkilä, Ilona Niemi, Aleksi Systä and Jenni Yppärilä, who were invited to the exhibition, are in dialogue with Koskinen’s work.

The exhibition is the 50th anniversary exhibition of the Rauma Art Museum and the Ars Rauma exhibition of The Artist’ Association of Rauma. Its curators are Heta Kaisto and Henna Paunu.
