Sculptor Eila Hiltunen's centenary exhibition presents the international artist's multifaceted career from the late 1940s to the 2000s.​

 

One of the most international artists of her generation, Eila Hiltunen was born one hundred years ago on 22 November 2022. The centenary exhibition organized by the artist’s estate and the Didrichsen Art Museum covers Hiltunen’s artistic career from its beginnings in the 1940s all the way to its end.

The exhibition features an extensive selection of Hiltunen’s early bronze sculptures, cubism-influenced sculptures from the 1950s, and later, open-form abstract pieces that have been worked directly into metal. Hiltunen incorporated welding into her work from the mid-1950s onwards – the resulting works represent the most characteristic artistic legacy of the sculptor.
