Arno Rafael Mikkinen: Taivaanranta / Obala neba / Firmament

MSU Gallery, December 9th 2017 – January 22nd 2018

During the exhibition “Firmament”, which will be held in the Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb, from December 9th 2017 to January 22nd 2018, our visitors will have an opportunity to see Arno Rafael Mikkinen’s work for the first time in Croatia. In his photographs he creates a recognizable mixture of the human body and landscape in an outstanding and unique way. The highlight of this exhibition will be his recent work, photographs taken during his visit to Croatia, which will be premiered here. The exhibition will also include a selection of photographs made between the 70’s and today. It is an opportunity to see his unique Self-portraits, showing the combination of his body and its surroundings in an unparalleled and often surprising ways, in which the body defies the laws of physics and what we usually expect from it.

In over one hundred independent and almost two hundred joint exhibitions, works of Arno Rafael Minkkinen have been exhibited in almost every significant museum and gallery dedicated to the promotion of contemporary art, such as The Museum of Modern Art in New York, The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Centre Pompidou and Musée d’Art Moderne in Paris, and many others.
