TCAF 2013 - La Bande Dessinée Finlandaise

The following is a description taken from the TCAF 2013 website:


The anthology and exhibition La Bande Dessinée Finlandaise 2013 presents comics art from 13 contemporary Finnish female authors. 
The field of Finnish comics is if not dominated, at least exceptionally brimming with female comics talent. Women artists have influenced and shaped comics with new topics and narrative styles that have enriched the artform as a whole, especially from the 90’s onwards. This exhibition features stories from several generations of female comic artists that have each been inspired by their predecessor. 
Artists in the exhibition: Mari Ahokoivu, Maria Björklund, Terhi Ekebom, Annukka Leppänen, Hanneriina Moisseinen, Reetta Niemensivu, Tiina Pystynen, Kati Rapia, Anna Sailamaa, Tiitu Takalo, Katja Tukiainen, Riitta Uusitalo, Amanda Vähämäki. 
La Bande Dessinée Finlandaise 2013 is the third installment in the Finnish Comics Annual series, which showcases works from the most interesting contemporary artists of the country. This year the anthology was edited jointly by comic artist Johanna Rojola and director of the Finnish Comics Society Kalle Hakkola and co-published in French with Édition Rackham and the Finnish Comics Society. Both the anthology and exhibition are supported by the Finnish Ministry of Culture and Education, Arts Promotion Centre Finland and the Finnish Literature Exchange.
