Description CONTEMPORARY ART often has nothing to do with images in frames, yet the concept and nature of the image remain fundamental questions of art. Image and After presents work from Kiasma’s collection that approach the themes of image and its absence from a variety of perspectives. THE EXHIBITION IS ORGANISED UNDER FOUR THEMES: Imminent Image; Syntaxes of the Image; Written Image, Painted Word; and Attitude as Method: Series, Repetition, Event. The resultant whole opens up possible views on the birth of the image, the boundaries between figurative and non-figurative art, and the interrelations of images and words. Contemporary art also shows us how new pictures can be made by using earlier images and conventions of representation.
