Finnish Museum of Photography exhibitions Call for 2018

Call for artists: The Finnish Museum of Photography’s Project Space exhibitions in 2018
The Project space is intended for exhibitions and projects that use photography or other lens-based media as tools for art or research. The space shows stimulating exhibitions by both fresh talents and more established artists.

Photography professionals and students as well as visual artists making photographic art can apply. Applications can also be submitted in the name of workgroups.

 

How to apply?

Application

The application must consist of a single pdf file. However, if the exhibition includes video, you can add a link to it instead of sending the video file as an attachment.

The pdf should contain the following elements:

1) A cover page with the name of the applicant (and/or the workgroup), e-mail address and a phone number (country code included).

2) Application letter that gives brief but complete details of the proposed exhibition (max 2 x A4). The letter should involve information of who is/are the applicant/s, what kind of an exhibition you would like to have and, if possible, what kind of sections does the exhibition consist of. It is okay to not have an existing exhibition when applying – just be as precise as possible with your explanations of what kind of an exhibition you’re planning.

3) Include a portfolio containing photos of the works to be in the planned exhibition. Indicate each work’s year of completion, dimensions, mode of production etc., and include any information that will help give a picture of the exhibition as a whole. In case the works for the planned exhibition have not been produced yet, please send some reference material of your earlier works.

If you are planning to show moving image, please add a link where we can see the work.

4) Include your full contact details and your CV to your application. If the exhibition is produced by a group, please include everyone’s CVs.

Name the pdf file as “Projekti2018_YOURNAME”. The size of the pdf file should not exceed 10MB.

Applications for the year 2018 should be sent to finnishmuseumofphotography@gmail.com by 12PM on Wednesday, May 31, 2017.

Please write Projekti2018 as the headline of the message.

We will send you a confirmation e-mail once we have received your application. Please contact museum’s curator Maria Faarinen ( maria.faarinen@fmp.fi ) if you have not heard back from us with a week from sending your application.

 

What does the Museum provide for exhibitors?

The Museum provides exhibition space, free, for 7-8 weeks. Applicants can indicate a preferred exhibition period, but the Finnish Museum of Photography reserves the right to decide on the order of the exhibitions. There are five exhibition periods during the year 2018.

The Project space has a floor area of 50 m² and a ceiling 4.5 m high (see floor plan).

The Museum offers exhibition installers a fixed production grant of 400 euros. The Artist is responsible of other production costs. The Museum provides help with installation and dismantlement, exhibition supervision, and opening arrangements. The artist should be personally present during the construction and dismantling of the exhibition.

The Museum is responsible for exhibition lighting and cleanliness during the exhibition period. The Museum has a limited amount of technical equipment available for loan to artists. The Museum is not able to provide any audio or video equipment for the exhibitions.

The Museum provides insurance for the construction, dismantlement and exhibition periods. The Museum does not insure works during transportation.

The Museum provides publicity, publishes exhibition details and sends press releases and posts information on the Museum’s website and social media channels.

The Museum does not provide paper invitations or postage. Artists who make and post invitations at their own expense can use the museum’s geographic mailing list if they wish.

Exhibition installers are responsible for transportation of works and for their own travel costs.

Artists take over Void Space in Athens. Deadline: April 15, 2017.

During the month of April, Void will launch an experimental approach to its platform and will work on an open-source model.

Artists are invited to take over Void’s space for short-term presentations of various projects.


The open-source model is a decentralized development model that encourages open collaboration. A main principle of open-source development is peer production, with products such as source code, blueprints, and documentation freely available to the public.


Void is open to receive proposals for talks, exhibitions, workshops, performances, etc.

Even though Void is a photography oriented space, we are open to any artistic expression. More important than the media support, we will take into consideration how innovative and unorthodox the proposition is.

Artists and curators can apply for the open source program that will take place on April 2017. Projects sent until 15 APR ‘17 will be reviewed and selected. Void’s idea is to give to new artists access to a free space that can host their ideas and practices.

What we are looking for, is innovative projects that can be flexible and adaptive to the space and time given.
Each project will have 2 days in Void.

 

Studio / workspace

Void is a newly created project, focusing on alternative publishing, exhibitions and workshops.
Void is also a physical space in the center of Athens, that can host your ideas.

Our goal is to engage in a series of projects around photography and other visual arts and to make Void a platform for exchanging ideas with people living both in Greece and abroad.

Calendar slots

Each project will be given 2 days at the space. And this is the total time, including mounting and unmounting (in case it is needed).

Projects that demand more time than this may be also considered.

You may apply for a specific calendar slot:

  • 18-19 APR ’17
  • 20-21 APR ’17
  • 22-23 APR ’17
  • 25-26 APR ’17
  • 27-28 APR ’17
  • 29-30 APR ’17

Fee and Support

Did we mention it is free?

We don’t ask for any fee for submitting the projects.
And if selected, we also won’t charge for anything.

Void will only provide the free space. Any other expenses that each project demands are entirely a responsibility of the artists.

 

Application information

Send an email (subject “Open-source” – proposal file should be no more than 5 Mb) with your idea to talkto@void.photo

The email must include:

  • A short bio and cv
  • A description of your project
  • A full description of the needed space modifications illustrated on Void’s blueprint
  • A full description of the material that will be used
  • The preferred calendar slot

Proposals should be received until 15 APR ‘17.

The projects will be selected in the order we receive them.
This means: early submissions are more likely to be selected.

IMPORTANT:

  • Artists must be present at Void for the whole process of mounting, unmounting and presenting their project.
  • All the projects should be non-profit oriented.
