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 participatory hopping between places. Some places will already be artistically charged (e.g. the gallery), whilst other places will challenge us to think about them in artistic ways (e.g. a dog show or industrial site). artHOP is a leisurely (yet active) Saturday afternoon hopping group and will meet every couple of weeks (please check this site for dates and locations). 3-4 places will be visited each time.
This artHOP will begin by meeting at Kluuvi Galleria to check out Sasha Huber's exhibition Haïti Chérie. The proceeding places included in this artHOP will include a visit to art-run project space 00130Gallery, and a non-art site. Welcome along!
