We are taking a moment to look back on 2014 and relive the highlights!

Äkkigalleria organized 7 exhibitions this year including one (Äkkigalleria's first) exhibition outside of Jyväskylä in Vancouver Canada. This year focused for the most part on residencies and exchanges. The first exchange was for Äkkigalleria 24 where a biologist worked together with 2 short-film animators from England. Another exchange was through Mexican artist Mazatl who brought a collection of political prints from the Justseeds collective and the La Convergencia Gráfica MALLA. Äkkigalleria collaborated with Vancouver gallerist from inital gallery to bring Finnish art to Vancouver Canada. And finally through our Photoannual residency artist, Carolina Cruz Guimarey, we ended the year with a shortfilm screening organized at the university of Valencia in Spain.
