THE FINNISH MUSEUM OF PHOTOGRAPHY’S PROJECT SPACE
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
This year the museum only accepts applications that 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.
Name the pdf file as “Projekti2017_YOURNAME”. The size of the pdf file should not exceed 10MB.
Applications for the year 2017 should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by 12PM on Sunday, May 8, 2016.
Please write Projekti2017 as the headline of the message.
The Museum provides exhibition space, free, for 7-8 weeks.
