HeavyMerryFinland is an independent artist collective promoting Finnish art and artists internationally. HMF operates on a non-commercial basis and it provides opportunities for artists to build contacts abroad. The goal is to organize exhibitions for invited artists in galleries, art institutes and art fairs, to find collaboration possibilities with foreign institutions and to facilitate and enhance networking. New contacts, opportunities and collaboration possibilities are key to the work.
HMF has been working closely with Finnish Cultural Institute for the Benelux to organize exhibitions at Roodkapje exhibition place in Rotterdam 2011 and Recyclart Art Center in Brussels 2012. In 2013 HMF was selected to participate Supermarket Art Fair in Stockholm, Sweden, where we build lots of international contacts and were invited to participate other international Art Fairs. In 2013 we organized exhibition at Titanik Gallery in Turku, Finland. This exhibition was a collaboration exhibition with 6 upcoming contemporary Dutch artists.
