ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE opportunity in Finland for a Sound Artist. The selected artist will be based in Espoo, near Helsinki for the month of August 2012, hosted by MUU Artists Association.
MUU is an artist run, Finnish interdisciplinary artist association, founded in 1987 to represent and promote new and experimental forms of art. These are such as media art, performance, video, environmental, space and conceptual art, sound and other experimental modes of cultural production.
The residency consists of a one-month stay (August 1-31 2012) at the Tapiola Guest Studio, located in Espoo, 8 km from the centre of Helsinki. The residency is located in a park-like setting just beside the sea. The residency is organised in cooperation with The Finnish Artists’ Studio Foundation.
The residency includes an artists talk at the MUU gallery. MUU is also interested in arranging a sound workshop in August, and are looking for proposals for the workshop. A salary will be paid for conducting the workshop.
The residency also includes an opportunity to perform at the newly open Sound Gallery Akusmata, curated and organized by Petri Kuljuntausta.
MUU will cover travel to Finland, accommodation and a small artist fee.
The deadline is 31 March 2012.
