30.1.-25.4.2021 TOGETHER – Vintage photographs of communities in Salo area
In Spring 2021 Salo Art Museum presents a followup to its exhibition from 2014, Salo in Old Photographs. The exhibition showcases photographs taken in the centre of Salo, aswell as in the neighbouring villages and towns which are now part of the same joint municipal authority. The photographs depict villages and communities of people working and spending time together, celebrating their special days and living their everyday life. The old photographs tell stories about the daily chores in the fields and forests during the early decades of last century, work communities, mills and factories, but also about leisure time activities, such as sports competitions or communal singing and dance halls. In other words, the photographs depict events and gatherings bringing people together.
