Maaretta Jaukkuri Foundation

Good news and building start

MJF recieves generous support from Innovation Norway and SpareBank1 Nord-Norge’s Cultural Business Development Foundation

The Foundation receives funding by Innovation Norway and SpareBank1 Nord-Norge’s Cultural Business Development Foundation in support of its building. This combined with the funds generated by the generous donations of works from artists Kari Cavén, Tony Cragg, Dorothy Cross, A K Dolven, Anne-Karin Furunes, Antony Gormley, Dan Graham, Alfredo Jaar, Anish Kapoor, Cildo Meireles, Esko Männikkö, Björn Nörgaard, Markus Raetz, and Gediminas Urbonas to MJF, enables the Foundation to commence the building process as planned in spring 2017. The building, designed by architect Kimmo Aslak Liimatainen, will house Maaretta Jaukkuris private collection of art works and library that both will grow with MJF into the future.
