Expired: Open Call to Visual Artists in the Nordic Countries

26.04.18 | Opslagstavle

Do you want to create site specific art for the display window and/or the corridor wall at the Nordic Culture Point in the heart of Helsinki?

The Nordic Culture Point is a cultural institution operating under the Nordic Council of Ministries. We administer four Nordic grant programmes, run a Nordic library and a cul-tural centre in the heart of Helsinki and arrange cultural events. The vision of the Nordic Culture Point is that everyone should be able to participate in culture and society on equal terms.

In the autumn of 2018 we will launch a new series of site-specific art works displayed at our premises at Kaisaniemenkatu 9 in Helsinki. There will be 3 application rounds during 2018-2020. Applications are welcome from artists with a permanent address in a Nordic country, regardless of nationality.

Your artwork should visually comment on The Nordic Culture Point’s profile and themes. Our theme for the autumn 2018 is “encounters” (encounters with our neighbouring countries, with pioneers, with authors and other artists etc.). The UN global en-vironmental goals Agenda 2030 is a guiding principle in our activities.

We offer the selected artist an artist fee of 1000€, including taxes,and reimburse travel, material and working costs up to 1000€ as well as a daily allowance of 42€/day, the Finnish tarif. Our guest apartment in Suomenlinna, a Unesco world heritage site 10 minutes by boat from the city centre, is at your disposal free of charge during the work-ing period, between August 15th-September 7th. The opening will take place on Septem-ber 7th at 5 pm.

Please see the specifics regarding the exhibition space here……

Interested? Please send your cv., a brief description and/or rudimentary sketch of your idea and a link or a pdf of your previous work to the undersigned by May 25th 2018.

We only pay for the commissioned work, and ask you not to invest time and work in a detailed proposal. Should we want more information before the selection we will get in touch.

We reserve the right to freely select the commissioned work.
