An anticipated staple of Helsinki Design Week, the annual SIDE SHOW group exhibition this year will focus on designer/artist duos. The pairs will freely interpret this year’s HDW theme “Learning Climate” in their works, and their mutual dialogue will be present in the pieces. Expect to experience a wide range of multidisciplinary and unique installations in an atmospheric gallery space in the heart of Ullanlinna.

The exhibition will also host curated talks and other events throughout the festival.
