The summer exhibition Me: Self-Portraits Through Time at Kunsthalle Helsinki opens shows more than 160 self-portraits from the end of the 19th century until present day. Many self-portraits look back at us as an embodiment of the mythical artist, as a rare breed above the everyday. Others show an artist with less idealism, with even a gritty intimacy. The exhibition includes paintings, photography, video, and sculpture works from more than a hundred Finnish artists.

Gallery artists included in the exhibition are Hannaleena Heiska, Jukka Korkeila, Rauha Mäkilä, Heli Rekula, Janne Räisänen and Henry Wuorila-Stenberg.
