HICP Curatorial Residencies
Helsinki International Curatorial Programme
Helsinki International Curatorial Programme organised by HIAP – Helsinki International Artist Programme and FRAME Finnish Fund for Art Exchange currently offers curatorial residencies in Helsinki for international visual arts curators
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.
Curatorial residencies include the cost of travel to and from Helsinki with a grant for living expenses, studio accommodation, residency services and administrative support. Practical assistance for the participant's curatorial project are provided by HIAP and FRAME. A small public event (e.g. workshop, lecture, open meeting) will also be organised during the residency. The curator will have access to an extensive collection of Finnish artist portfolios at the FRAME office.
The length of the curatorial residency is usually one calendar month.
