Acrobatic Croquis

Helsingin Taidehalli 10.10., 17.10., 24.10., 31.10. 18.15–20.00

This autumn’s movement croquis brings new challenges to drawing when Circus Artist Petri Ekqvist performs acrobatic moves in Kunsthalle Helsinki’s exhibition space. The focus of the Acrobatic Croquis lies in observing the connection between acrobatics and movement: acrobatic moves and handstand poses challenge the drawer to percept the human body in a new way.

Please bring your own drawing materials. Tickets: €8 / Finnish Art Society’s members €5. Please note that places are limited (50 seats). No advance registration.
