Open call: Do you want to create site specific art for the corridor wall at the Nordic Culture Point?
In the autumn of 2019 we invite Nordic artists to suggest a site-specific art work to be displayed at our premises at Kaisaniemenkatu 9 in Helsinki. This will be the second of three 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 2019 is “Individual voice – collective expression”. The UN global environmental 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 rate. 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 working period, between August 6th and 15th. The opening will take place on August 15th at 5 pm, as part of the Night of the Arst of the Helsinki Festival 2019.
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 15th 2019.
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.
