The Praxis Master’s Programme in Exhibition Studies programme at the University of the Arts Helsinki helps you grow into a professional of exhibition practices and find your own voice in the field of art. 

You will learn to understand the world of arts and its relationship with the surrounding society. In your thinking, the roles of a mediator of art, curator and artist are combined through the public exhibition of art. 


The Praxis programme develops students’ thinking regarding the surrounding society as well as the exhibition and mediation of art. The goal is to understand the art world and its underlying forces and to establish different types of active work roles in the arts. 

The Praxis studies cover both the basics of theory and philosophy of art and the practices of public exhibition of art. Students of the Praxis programme are educated together with art students, which gives them the chance to work with artists in different kinds of spaces where art is exhibited, such as exhibition spaces, the public space, catalogues and digital environments.
