HIAP – Helsinki International Artist Programme and Frame Contemporary Art Finland are looking for international curators of contemporary art to join the Helsinki International Curatorial Programme (HICP) in 2018.
The aims of the programme are two-fold:
To allow internationally active, professional curators the chance to connect with the local contemporary art field and plan projects in collaboration with artists and partner organisations operating in Finland.
To support curatorial research in its diverse and emergent forms.
HIAP offers the resident curators a combined workspace and accommodation. Frame provides them with a working grant (39 euros per residency day) and a travel allowance. Both organisations provide the curator fellows with individualised assistance and networking support tailored to their project or research. The HICP curators have access to the international residency community and programme of events at HIAP, while Frame provides contacts with extensive networks of Finnish artists and other art professionals.
The length of the curatorial residency is one calendar month. In 2018, the residencies will be organised as follows:
May 2018: 2 one-month curator residencies
November 2018: 2 one-month curator residencies
