"Nordic Painting" is a three-year collaborative project (2022–2024) between Nordic Culture Point in Helsinki and the Finnish Painters’ Union (TML). Within the framework of Nordic Painting, an exhibition collaboration is carried out each year, together with a third party from another Nordic country. In 2022, it is Norway and the Association of Norwegian Painters (LNM) who act as partners. This year’s exhibition will be divided into two parts and will take place partly in the Finnish Painters’ Union’s gallery in central Helsinki, and partly in Nordic Culture Point’s historic premises in Suomenlinna.

 The artists participating in Nordic Painting 2022 are Ingrid Toogood (NO), Espen Brændsrød (NO), Satu Raitiainen (FI) and Meri Toivanen (FI).
