My Childhood is a multidisciplinary and multicultural exhibition for children, young people and families. It gathers stories of childhood created by transcultural artists living and working in Finland. Within the exhibition childhood relates to culture, identity and diversity. The meaningful and experiential stories find varied and experimental forms within the selected artworks – in the exhibition you may find a work that maps family ties with hair and a collection of lullabies in nearly forty different languages.
The My Childhood exhibition is a collaboration between Catalysti Association of Transcultural Artists ry and Annantalo Arts Centre. The exhibition was curated via an Open Call for Catalysti member artists in October 2020. The exhibition is curated by Paola Livorsi and Tatiana Solovieva from Catalysti and Anna Puhakka from Annantalo Arts Centre.
On Sunday 24th of October My Childhood hosts a Family Day at Annantalo. Family Day is an open event of workshops and performances connected to the exhibition.
