Artefact is an exhibition and festival on the crossroads of contemporary visual arts, current events and societal challenges. Artefact presents contemporary art practices that engage with challenging complex topics and urgent themes, in a poetic, critical and experiential way.

In Artefact 2019: Parallel Crossings we focus on the theme of movement as a dynamic force inherent in nature, people and things alike. An exhibition featuring existing and new works by 15 artists and collectives reveals untold stories and sheds intriguing perspectives on this familiar, yet complex topic. The sound program zooms in on the musician as a travelling artist in an ever more connected world. A selection of lectures, workshops, film and performance, offer the possibility to continue your exploration.

We hope to see you soon in STUK.
