ANTI – Contemporary Art Festival

ANTI – Contemporary Art Festival is an international contemporary arts festival presenting site-specific works made for public spaces.

Held annually in Kuopio, the city hosts the festival, projects by artists from around the world inhabit the spaces of public life – homes, shops, city squares, business, forests, lakes – and directly engage communities and audiences in the making and showing of their work.

ANTI Festival is annual and free of charge for audiences. The next festival will take place between 13th and 18th September 2022 in Kuopio.

ANTI – Contemporary Art Festival 13th – 18th September 2022

ANTI Festival is undergoing a year of transformation. Just like the festival looking for its own, new path – through the works selected for this year’s festival we will get on a journey. 

Many of the artworks also examine connections between different periods of time and use collective rituals to look for things that we still can – or find it impossible to – believe in and commit to in a world overshadowed by crises.

Once again, the festival week will culminate with the announcement of the winner of the ANTI Festival International Prize for Live Art.

Bookings to the performances start in August.
