On the shore of Aura River in Turku, Finland, lies the biggest contemporary art gallery of the city, called Titanik. Titanik Gallery was founded in February 1988 by Artist’s Association Arte. Along with exhibitions Titanik runs an international artist residency programme. Titanik is a well-known platform for upcoming artists and unconventional art. The exhibitions are selected by Arte board members. Open call for exhibitions for 2017 has ended. Titanik arranges not only exhibitions and residency opportunities but also provides activities such as concerts and performances which are free and open for public. Titanik’s exhibitions react to their environment and its events. Titanik provides an alternative for Turku art scene.
