The Kluuvi Gallery is managed by the Helsinki City Art Museum. It focuses on experimental and non-commercial works of Finnish artists, offering opportunities to projects, which would be difficult to realise elsewhere in Helsinki. The City of Helsinki sponsors the Gallery financially by charging a very low lease and taking no sales commission.
