The House Games Triennial was organized for the 4th time this year during the first week of November 2014:
The exhibition was open for 18 hours over 7 days and a total of 189 visitors attended the exhibition and various events.
This year 25 artists participated from 16 different cities. In accordance with the House Games mandate, the exhibition theme revolved around the home. This year's work touched on the comfortable intimacy of home along with themes of the home though specific textures, colours and objects.
Most of the artists presented new work made for the House Games exhibition, which resulted in a variety of site-specific installations, videos, drawings new-media art, performances and sculptures. In a broad sense, this year the work presented in House Games dealt with themes of the home in a sensorial way, through taste, sound, colour, textures and movement.
The 2014 House Games also included the most extensive event calendar yet, with on average two events per evening. An open knitting night, kitchen music, poetry readings, circus, theatre and dance performances, not to mention artist's talks and an Art Tasting event.
This year House Games received support from TAIKE Arts Promotion Centre's Arts Council of Central Finland and The City of Jyväskylä.
House Games also received support from the Jyväskylä Art Museum and the Craft Museum of Central Finland.
