The artists in the gallery’s first exhibition are Kati Hyyppä, Jari Johannes, Antti Immonen, Mimosa Pale, Walerija Peter and Tuomo Vuoteenoma, last of whom being the artistic director of the house. The exhibition features kinetic sculptures, installations, graphics, sound and light art, and performances.

Kita opens in Joutsa, right next to E75 road on the lakeside. The house has been abandoned for decades and has lately been converted as a special gallery of kinetic arts . The roots of specializing in kinetic art can be found in years of work on the Haihatus’ Avantgardevekkula exhibition concept, where one emphasis has been on kinetic sculptures and installations. It is an art exhibition that encourages human curiosity, with works that are visually impressive but also with challenging contents.

Kita is open 2.7. – 7.8. Wed-Sun 11-18 and August weekends Sat-Sun 11-18. The exhibition can be found at Tokerontie 11, Joutsa. A café and toilet facilities as well as a parking space for cars are located in the vicinity of nearby Huttula -restaurant.

Tickets: 10/5 €. KITA is a Museum Card destination.

Kita’s operations have been strongly supported by Restaurant Huttula by handing over its property to Haihatus and the LEADER support granted by the Central Finlands ELY Center.
