Curatorial Residencies in Helsinki
Helsinki International Curatorial Programme currently offers curatorial
residencies in Helsinki for international visual arts curators. The programme
is collaboration between HIAP - Helsinki International Artist-in-residence
Programme and FRAME Finnish Fund for Art Exchange.
The aim of the programme is to provide curators with an opportunity to carry
out research on Finnish fine art, to build contacts with Finnish art
practitioners and cultural organisations and to develop international
curatorial projects involving Finnish participants.
The programme is open to curators worldwide with professional experience in
organising visual arts projects.
Curatorial residencies include the cost of travel to and from Helsinki with a
grant for living expenses provided by FRAME, studio accommodation and
residency services provided by HIAP and administrative support and practical
assistance for the participant's curatorial project provided jointly by FRAME
and HIAP. A small public event (workshop, lecture, open meeting, etc) will
also be organized during the residency.
The length of the curatorial residency is usually one calendar month.
Applications are accepted throughout the year. The jury reviewing the
applications meets at least twice a year. Applications should be sent by May
1st to qualify for review at the following meeting.
Applications should include presentation materials of the applicant's previous
projects, a curriculum vitae, a working plan for the residency period and a
proposal for a public event to be organised during the residency.
Applications should be sent by post to the address below. Please note that all
electronic material should be compatible with both Mac and PC computers and
