The Demolition Art House Pinni47

The Demolition Art House Pinni47 is now closed. Thank you for visiting and supporting!

The 1st demolition art house in Tampere, Pinni47, brings completely new kind of art to the cultural summer of the city centre! Prior to its demolition, a five-storey building located in the Tulli area, at Pinninkatu 47, will be converted into an art exhibition and cultural venue that breaks down barriers and walls. Similar art projects have never before been implemented in Tampere. The exhibition is curated by visual artist Teemu Mäenpää.

Accessibility info

Pinni 47 has an elevator to access all exhibition floors. Access to the elevator takes place from the right side of the exhibition main entrance with its own entrance. Ring the doorbell at the main entrance and the staff will come to open the elevator. The elevator only works with a key, so the staff assists in using it also between exhibition floors.

There are no stairs on the exhibition floors. Thresholds in the doorways are maximum 2cm. The width of the doors is 70cm at their narrowest (toilets), and 80-90cm in the exhibition rooms. Some of the works are located in rooms where for example wheelchair access cannot be guaranteed.

The building is so outdated that, unfortunately, there are no accessible toilets. There are unisex toilets on each floor. The nearest accessible toilet can be found on the side of the main entrance of the Tullintori shopping center on the second floor (access via elevator).

Possible content warnings for the works will be notified in the exhibition space.
Some works may contain flashing lights, loud sounds or distressing imagery.

Organisers

The Demolition Art House Pinni47 project is managed by the Pirkanmaan luovat tuottajat ry association, and its main co-operation partners are TOAS, the City of Tampere and the city-managed cultural development project Operation Pirkanmaa. Pinni47 is a pilot project exploring how soon-to-be-demolished buildings could be utilised also in the future to bring life into the centre of Tampere through art and culture.
