The Finnish Institute in London with Block 336 invites applications from artists (or collaborative duos) who are currently living in Finland for a 5 week residency culminating in the production and exhibition of a site-specific new piece that will directly reflect the theme of ‘work’.
This is a fantastic international opportunity for artists that have not have previously presented a solo exhibition of their work in the U.K and want to develop their practice in the heart of one of the world’s international art capitals.
Coinciding with the conclusion of Finland’s two-year social experiment to provide a universal basic income, the residency will provide a large-scale exhibition space that the artist will occupy during the residency period to produce their work as well as residential accommodation and a materials and installation budget.
The successful applicant will reflect on and produce artwork around the themes of ‘work’, ‘pay’ and ‘labour’, in consideration of local, national and global implications. Applicants are required to submit a proposal (up to 500 words) illustrating how they might approach the residency, what they hope to achieve, as well as an outline for the final outcome that will be presented in the exhibition. The panel will be looking for well developed, context-specific proposals.
Application deadline: Monday 12th November 2018 (10am UK time).
