Amos Anderson art museum issues call to artists aged 15-23
Intended for artists aged 15-23, Generation 2017 will be Amos Anderson Art Museum’s main exhibition in spring 2017 and the museum’s last show on Yrjönkatu before the new Amos Rex venue opens in Helsinki’s Lasipalatsi. The ambitious aim of the exhibition is to present the nascent art of young artists. The call for artworks for this exhibition, which in the future will be held every three years, runs from August 15 to November 15, 2016.
The call is open for paintings, installations, computer programs, performances, or anything made with passion. We hope you will spread the word to those who might be interested in this exhibition.
Generation 2017, an exhibition showcasing young artists
Any artist aged 15-23 can apply to join the exhibition, as an individual or as part of a group.
Where & when?
Amos Anderson Art Museum in Helsinki + online. The exhibition will open in spring 2017. A nationwide call for art is NOW under way, and continues until November 15, 2016.
What kind of art?
The form and content of the artworks is entirely up to you. An entry can be, for instance, a video, an audio work, a website, a happening, a photograph, a performance, a game, a drawing, an installation, a painting, handicrafts or graffiti. Whether you have used a pencil, camera, computer or a wrench to make it, we are interested! Your entry does not need to be entirely completed — once we’re interested, we’ll ask you to tell us more. If needed, the museum can help you carry out your ideas and assist with the cost of materials.
This exhibition will be an opportunity for young artists to display their work in a new environment, to reach a broad public and get a foothold on the art scene. The more adventurous and wide-ranging these new artists are at presenting their talent, the more likely members of the public will be captivated and discover that something like this, too, can be produced and exhibited. We want to see and experience something new, and we are certain we are not alone!
GRANDE FINALE! Amos Anderson Art Museum is building a new museum, Amos Rex, beneath the Lasipalatsi in central Helsinki. Generation 2017 will be the main exhibition of the year and, at the same time, the last show on Yrjönkatu. Artworks for the exhibition will be selected by curator Laura Köönikkä.
How to make a proposal?
