Ptarmigan operated in Tallinn from 2011-2014. This website exists as an archive of its activities during this time. We no longer maintain any presence in Tallinn, but some people involved with Ptarmigan are now operating Temporary in Helsinki.
artHOP is a socially engaged participatory hopping between places. Some places will already be artistically charged (e.g. the gallery), whilst other places will challenge us to think about them in artistic ways (e.g. a dog show or industrial site). artHOP is a leisurely (yet active) Saturday afternoon hopping group and will meet every couple of weeks (please check this site for dates and locations). 3-4 places will be visited each time. Welcome along!
The first artHOPon Saturday 2nd April will focus on gallery spaces. We will meet at 2pm on the street level of Kalevankatu 18B to check out Milla-Kariina Oja’s exhibition at Hippolyte photographic gallery. From there we will venture down to Uudenmaankatu 35 to see Sampo Malin’s exhibition at Huuto Galleria, following this we’ll stroll down to Forum Box (Ruoholahdenranta 3a) to experience the work of Kaisu Koivisto. And last but not least we will complete the days hopping by visiting the Hietalahden kauppahalli and consider it within an “artistic” frame.
