Mission

Saariaho Järvenpää has become known as a contemporary art gallery willing to take chances. We represent emerging and established contemporary artists, seeking to highlight the exploratory relationship between the artist and audience.

Curator Jari Saariaho sees the art gallery as a brilliant medium to manifest and celebrate the enormous cultural change that is currently taking place. It is the most significatnt change since the Industrial Revolution of the 19th century. ”Everything changes. And deserves to change. A similar upheaval took place during the Industrial Revolution. It is art's purpose to create meanings, show and encapsulate the essential in our time. It is also our gallery's purpose.”
