Gallery Taik Persons is a contemporary art gallery representing established and emerging artists who use the photographic process as a conceptual tool. It is the prime gallery for those selected artists who now make up what is known as the “Helsinki School”.
Founded by Timothy Persons in 1995 in Helsinki/ Finland, the gallery is since summer 2005 located in Berlin/Germany. Organising between seven and eight shows a year, the programme varies between solo- and group exhibitions by the Gallery’s main artists as well as guest artists curated by the gallery.
The gallery participates in international art fairs and tours museum exhibitions for its primary artists. Moreover, Gallery Taik Persons works actively with independent publishing houses such as Hatje Cantz as well as Kehrer Verlag in creating limited edition art books.
Its creator and director Timothy Persons is Adjunct Professor at Aalto University, School of Art, Design and Architecture. His curatorial experience ranges from senior curator for Kulturhuset in Stockholm to having been Senior Curatorial Advisor to the Danish National Museum of Photography in Copenhagen as well as KIASMA Museum of Modern Art in Helsinki.
