The IHME Festival of Contemporary Art presents its IHME Days during 26-28 March at the Old Student House in Helsinki, offering everybody an opportunity to expand their perceptions of contemporary art. The themes of the lectures, discussions and workshops are inspired by the art of Susan Philipsz, the creator of this year´s IHME Project which can be heard at the Helsinki Central Railway Station. All the events are free of charge.
The IHME Days are a cultural cornucopia with a program featuring, for example, John Cage´s classic 4’33” work, lullabies, the IHME Marathon of contemporary art and The Trial judged by philosopher Tuomas Nevanlinna. The themes of the second IHME Days are sound as art work and art in public space.
The workshops do not require any prior singing or musical skills, so brace yourself and join in! There are still vacancies in the Shouting Workshop, Sari Kaasinen´s Lullaby Workshop and the Let´s Make Noise Workshop, which is meant for children over 8 years old. Please register by 19 March 2010 on this page or on site at the Old Student House.
