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.

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.

With a nomadic and intensive format, CPR promotes dialogue between international curators and local artistic scenes. The program was created by curators and for curators, and is a non-profit international organization based in Indianapolis, USA, with satellite locations in more than 12 cities throughout the world. Each satellite city develops its activities through partnerships with local institutions, designating a host curator for each case. CPR draws up an academic program, with specialized readings about art history and general knowledge, together with visits to museums and artist studios, and discussions with scholars and experts.

Applicants must have been born after January 1, 1978 (i.e., must not be above 35 years of age); applications from photographers and artists who work in the medium of photography, regardless of gender, nationality or professional or amateur status, are welcome.

Application Period
Period for application via the Website and for receipt of submissions April 15 – May 15, 2013

Rules and Conditions
1. Submissions on CDs or other digital recording media will not be accepted. All submissions must be in the form of prints.
2. Previous publication of an image will not be a cause for disqualification.
3. Any theme or technique is acceptable. The images must, however, be of archival quality both in technique and materials, since they will become part of the Museum’s permanent collection.
4. Each applicant may submit up to 50 images, whether single-image or multi-image works.
5. An applicant who has submitted work for previous years’ Young Portfolio is welcome to apply again, as long as the applicant is not above 35 years of age; previous selection of a work for purchase for the Young Portfolio collection will not be a cause for disqualification.

Submitting prints
1. Works must be 20 cm x 25 cm or larger but no larger than 1 meter on either dimension.
2. If the print you are submitting is not in the size planned for the finished print, please include a note indicating the intended finished print size. If the Museum decides to acquire that image, the photographer must bear the cost of producing and shipping a print of the intended size. Bear in mind, however, that the selection committee will be basing its decision on the print submitted, including its size and quality.
3. If the Museum decides to acquire an image for which an ink-jet print of unsatisfactory permanence has been submitted, the photographer must then provide an archival quality color print, using pigment-based inks, suitable for long-term conservation. The cost of producing and shipping the new print is borne by the photographer.
4. Prints in black and white must be printed on fiber-based paper and processed for long-term conservation. Submissions for selection, however, may be RC paper prints; if the Museum decides to acquire an image on RC paper, the photographer must provide a print on fiber-based paper and processed for long-term conservation. The cost of producing and shipping the new print is borne by the photographer.
5. Works must be signed, either on the face or on the back. Use a pencil for prints on fiber-based photographic paper and a Stabilo pencil or other pencil that can write on plastic for prints on plastic-based photographic paper.
6. Each print should be placed a separate transparent polypropylene or other plastic envelope; the entry form for each print should be attached with adhesive tape to the back of the envelope. Do not place more than one print in an envelope.
7. Works that are panel mounted, framed, or mounted on mat board are not acceptable.

The Selection Committee
Selection will be made by a selection committee appointed by the Museum. The 2013 selection committee members are Kikuji KAWADA, Masato SETO and Eikoh HOSOE (Director of the Museum).

Prices
Selected works will be purchased by the Museum at prices from JPY30,000 to JPY100,000 per work. In the case of multi-image works, the selection committee may, at its discretion, choose to purchase only some of the images. Photographers (copyright holders) whose work is selected for acquisition will be requested to sign the purchase agreement prescribed by the Museum.

Exhibition
The “Young Portfolio Acquisitions 2013” exhibition is scheduled to open in March, 2014, at the Kiyosato Museum of Photographic Arts.
