Bloom is Lokal’s biannual youth exhibition; an established platform for young blossoming creatives to present and sell their work in a curated group exhibition context.
The 2021 Bloom, the sixth of its kind, will be held in Lokal 6.5.–5.6.2021. Central to Lokal’s mission is to support emerging makers, challenge boundaries, make new connections, and thus to promote the work of new visionaries. Bloom exhibits works of Finnish of Finland-based artists and designers under the age of 30. The works include art pieces in various mediums, unique design items, as well as handmade objects in small-scale production.
The participants selected for Bloom 2021 are: Minna Arponen, Oliver Barbier, Ella Boucht, Caracara Collective, Elisa Defossez, Ama Essel, Taisa Helena, Maija Järviniemi, Linnea Kilpi, Ulla Kokki, Lorenzo Marotti, Riikka Peltola, Julia Töyrylä and Risako Yamanoi.
