Aesthetic Research Tour 2.12.-3.3.2019

The Aesthetic Research Tour built in the Copper smithy in Fiskars will show Smith as the poetic artist that the sculptor / curator Martti Aiha has discovered going through his recently catalogued works. The visitor will be guided through the beauty of found objects and never ending curiosity – The poetry of putting things together in a way that makes us humans feel joy about this business of being alive.

The exhibition will be open 2.12.2018 -3.3.2019 wed-sun 12-17.

The exhibition is part of Howard Smith 90 jubileum supported by Finnish Cultural Foundation, The Arts promotion Center, Sophie von Julin foundation, Vallila, Fiskars Village, Onoma and Kuparipaja.
