Artists Jukka Korkeila and Anna Retulainen participate in a group exhibition Pleasure at Helsinki Art Museum HAM. Running from August 25 through 12 November, the exhibition explores the pleasurable interaction that artists and viewers alike have with paintings.
Pleasure is a retrospective joint exhibition by Jukka Korkeila (b. 1968), Elina Merenmies (b. 1967) and Anna Retulainen (b. 1969). Showcasing the careers of these powerful artists from the early 1990s to the present that explore the dynamic between the tradition of fine art and contemporary art. The exhibition also includes works from the collections of the Serlachius Museums and HAM, which were selected by the three featured artists to illustrate influences underlying their latest works. The show consists of about a hundred works, the latest of them produced specifically for this exhibition.

The Pleasure exhibition is accompanied by a publication that explores the themes of the show. The exhibition curator is Mika Hannula.
