Pori Art Museum Collections


Pori Art Museum houses two permanent collections and several deposit collections. The total number of works in both collections number more than 4,000. The museum's two main collections are the collection of the Maire Gullichsen Art Foundation, consisting of 535 works, and the City of Pori Art Collection, comprising over 2,200 works. The collection of the Maire Gullichsen Art Foundation consists mainly of Finnish art from the turn of the 19th and 20th century to the 1980s. The deposit collections support and complement the main collections, both in the field of Finnish art and also significantly in the field of international contemporary art. The museum also holds a deposition of 60 works from the Finnish Savings Bank's art collection, consisting mainly of works by artists from the Satakunta region.

Sivusto on syntynyt T.E.H.D.A.S. ry:n ja Porin taidemuseon yhteistyönä. Se sisältää tietokannan, johon tallenteiden metatiedot kirjataan. Tavoitteina on lisätä performanssitaiteen tunnettuutta, luoda edellytyksiä tutkimus- ja opetuskäytölle sekä mahdollistaa aineistojen pitkäaikaissäilytys. www.tehdasry.fi/dark/
