Ptarmigan existed as a project space in Vallila from 2009-2011 and a mobile curatorial/creative platfom until 2014. We no longer exist as an organised collective, but this website will continue to serve as an archive of the activities produced as Ptarmigan during these years.
Some of the people who were involved with Ptarmigan are now operating Temporary.
artHOP is a socially engaged hopping betweens places. Our 2012 programme of artHOP consists of a series of 6 tours around Helsinki sites. The tours have been mapped out by Christine Langinauer (XL Art Space) and Sari Kivinen (Ptarmigan).
Welcome to this years first artHOP! We will begin our season of 6 hopping tours at XL Art Space where we will experience an exhibition by Eric Mutel (a side-event of the Aave festival). We will then join our tour guide on a journey through the railway tunnel to selected sites considered as potentially interesting for cultural activities before embarking on a short train trip together to Malmi. Where we have the option to visit the Aave festival at Malmitalo. www.aavefestival.org
artHOP is a leisurely (yet active) Saturday afternoon hopping group.
