    Description

    Helsinki International Curatorial Programme 2020

    Curators Kate Brehme, Mary Conlon, Syaheedah Iskandar and Kathy-Ann Tan have been selected for one-month curatorial residencies in Helsinki. The application round was held in October 2019, with a total of 108 applications received.
    The jury consisted of Curator Anna Jensen, Head of Programme at Frame Contemporary Finland Jussi Koitela and Director at HIAP – Helsinki International Artist Programme Juha Huuskonen.
    “I was glad to be involved in the process of reading so many good applications bringing forward current urgent questions from ecological crisis to different forms of empathy. As a member of the jury I felt I was able to impact on issues important to me, such as accessibility, equality and inclusivity,” says jury member Anna Jensen.
    The Helsinki International Curatorial Programme HICP provides curators with an opportunity to carry out research and work on international curatorial projects while building contacts with art practitioners and cultural organisations in Finland and internationally. The curatorial residencies are co-organised by Frame Contemporary Art Finland and the HIAP Helsinki International Artist Programme.
    HIAP and Frame will both offer practical assistance, networking support and a critical context for the resident curators to carry out their research and projects. The curators will additionally be offered the opportunity to contribute to Frame’s Rehearsing Hospitalities public programme during September 2020.
