FNG Research is the open-access web magazine of the Finnish National Gallery for art museum and art history professionals internationally.

In issue 1/2024 Director of Collections Management Riitta Ojanperä writes in her editorial about the importance of the Finnish National Gallery’s Research Internship Programme. Dr Yvette Deseyve, Deputy Director of Alte Nationalgalerie, Berlin, sheds light on early women artists’ careers and their relevance in art history. Saara Karhunen, Curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, has written an article on the themes of Kiasma’s new collections exhibition. Last year’s FNG Research interns Maria Hynninen and Eero Karjalainen have written articles on their research topics; Hynninen on the cultural relationships between Finland and France and Karjalainen on a speculative approach to researching the FNG’s collection.
