The Näky-artwork of Joensuu Art Museum Onni is in the finals for Museum Communication Act of the Year 2019.  Näky (Sight) was created by Partanen & Lamusuo Ltd. This fantasy-like videomapping performance was projected to the facade of the museum. It reached nearly 13 000 viewers. You can watch a video of the performance in Youtube

Näky is an innovative communications act that has been created using newest technology. It serves also as a creative way to introduce museum collections for wider audience. The museum intendant Ulla Pennanen was behind this spectacular idea. 

The winners will be announced during the Museum Award Ceremony in May 2019. The Finnish Museums Association and the Finnish Committee for ICOM arrange the competition for 6th time.
