Institut finlandais serves as a platform for multidisciplinary dialogue through its onsite and off-site programming and seeks to explore how a cultural framework can foster international conversations in creative fields, such as design, fashion, architecture, cinema and performing arts.
The IF Galerie programme consists of carefully curated collections that present contemporary Finnish design, arts and crafts. The exhibitions are closely linked with the overarching programme of Institut finlandais.
Institut finlandais is pleased to introduce a Carte Blanche exhibition of Laura Väre in the spring of 2020. Laura Väre is a Helsinki-based furniture designer and the laureate 2019 of the Design Forum Finland’s Young Designer of the Year prize. Products designed by her often carry fine functional inventions and new techniques, and materials have been used innovatively and in a versatile way.
Institut finlandais proposes a rich program of short, medium-length and feature films of all the Nordic scenes. As part of the program, Institut finlandais organises and hosts regular talks and presentations with film industry experts. IF Screenings events take place either in our 60-seat downstairs screening room or in other partner cinemas. The IF Screenings program provides an excellent opportunity to discover Institut finlandais, simultaneously echoing its overarching programme.
