HISTORY

Short History

   

The Graphic Artist Association of Lahti organized the first Miniprint Finland exhibition on 1992 in Gallery Marian Portti, Lahti. Only Finnish graphic artists were invited to participate in the exhibition. In 1995 Miniprint Finland expanded into another small art gallery in Lahti, Gallery Piha. This time and ever since also international artists were invited to participate. While planning the Miniprint Finland 1998 exhibition, the organizers realized, that the event had achieved such popularity internationally, that they asked Lahti Art Museum as a partner to offer a valuable exhibition space for the coming Miniprint events.

 

Lahti Art Museum was a partner for the next four Miniprints, altogether for twelve years. The main event has been expanding also by it’s side events and – exhibitions. For example artists, who had been awarded inearlier Miniprints, were invited to have an collective exhibition in Lahti Art Brewery 2004. And in 2010 the organizers invited the guardian of Miniprint Finland 2010, the graphic artist Outi Heiskanen to have her solo show in Kulma, Gallery Uusi Kipinä, Lahti. At the same year a Netherlander graphic artist couple, Bea Fahrenhorst and Tom Thijsse were invited to have their exhibitions in other two l gallery rooms in Uusi Kipinä and in the fourth gallery room, were exhibited “Selected Pearls” , some of the outselected works from the main exhibition.
