Forum Box is a non-profit artist-run co-operative initiated in 1996 by sculptor Kain Tapper (1930-2004). Its main purpose is to maintain an art space in Helsinki in order to enrich and support Finnish cultural life. Currently it has 50 artist members, all of which are prominent Finnish artists and actors in the field of contemporary art. Forum Box aims to be a space open for all forms of art. The gallery presents contemporary artists, both Finnish and international, established and emerging. Each month it organizes an art exhibition plus several live arts events, such as meetings with exhibiting artists, performance art, concerts, theatre and dance performances.
