"100 years - 100 posters" - Exhibition of Finnish poster art

Official relations between Finland and Viet Nam go back to the year 1972, when on 28 December Finland recognized the then Democratic Republic of Viet Nam. Diplomatic ties were established on 25 January, 1973, two days before the signing of the Paris Peace agreement. Embassy of Finland in Hanoi was established in 1974. During the jubilee year, a series of events will be organised in different parts of Viet Nam, including Exhibition of Finnish poster art.

The exhibition at the Centre for Management of Cultural Heritages, Da Nang, from 6th to 10th May, 2013, consists of 100 posters since the beginning of the 20th century, from the collections of the Lahti Poster Museum of Finland.

The exhibition is part of the jubilee year program for the 40th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Finland and Viet Nam in 2013

Surprising, colorful illustrations depict in a refreshing way not only the development of graphic design, but also the development of Finnish society and economy. The exhibition gives a broad picture of sports, tourism, advertising, education etc. Many of the posters are early advertisements of well-known Finnish companies, such as Finnair, Nokia, Fazer and Sinebrychoff and others.

The Centre for Management of Cultural Heritages, #78 Le Duan Street, Da Nang, is open from 07.30 hrs to 11.30 hrs, and from 13.30 hrs to 17.30 hrs every day during the period of exhibition.
