    Surrealist Routes to Kiasma’s Collections


    The Night Train takes the viewer into the nocturnal world, surprisingly or mysterious events between sleep and wakefulness.  The landscape flashing past the train’s window suddenly changes from familiar to strange.  Aboard the Night train, you can experience a glimpse of the magical light of a summer’s night or the dark shades of unattainable love.

    The Night Train collection display takes the viewer along four routes into the Kiasma collections.  Each route opens a new perspective on the legacy of surrealism in contemporary art.  The works in the exhibition share a feeling of the unfamiliar and strange, turning one’s eyes to the uncharted territory of the human mind.
