The spring 2020 edition of the HIAP Open Studios took place as a special online event featuring a selection of videos, images and audio recordings by the participating artists!

Since the start of the spring residency season, the world has changed in ways we could have never predicted. The current pandemic has certainly affected how we see the world, how we work and connect as a society. This situation has presented a whole lot of new questions and challenges for the spring season artists-in-residence at HIAP. Their ability to adapt and develop their work in more experimental ways during this period has been inspiring. While observing the recommended social distancing, our community found ways to remain connected. Despite self-isolating in their studios on Suomenlinna and beyond, the artists have been working on projects which we are excited to now share with you and invite you to explore!

Between 12th and 20th May, the temporary website provided a unique opportunity to learn more about each resident’s artistic practice and to encounter works-in-progress that the artists have been developing during their residency.

 Open Studios Spring 2020 has now concluded.

This season’s event has been developed by the HIAP team in dialogue with the resident artists and the HIAP supporting curator of the spring season Maaretta Jaukkuri (Finland).
