The Helsinki Art Museum Tennis Palace will be hosting the famous Chaplin exhibition, Chaplin in Pictures, from 14th February – 13th July 2014.
Chaplin in Pictures gives the audience a glimpse behind the scenes during the shooting of the films. The exhibition approaches Chaplin’s career through a number of themes that range from the creation of the little Tramp to the advent of sound in film. Chaplin was also an inspiration to countless other artists, including Fernand Legér and Robert Capa, who are both featured in the exhibition. The Chaplin phenomenon was prominent in Finland as well, as attested to the film posters, film magazines and photographs included in the show.
The exhibition is presented with the backing of the Chaplin Association organised in conjunction with the Cineteca di Bologna – progetto Chaplin and MK2. The exhibition curator is Sam Stourdzé of the Musée de l’Elysée.
