Oksasenkatu 11: Open Call 2020/ Site-specific art
 
We’re inviting an artist or a group of artists to send proposals for a solo exhibition in August 2020 at Oksasenkatu 11. The theme of the open call is site-specific art and it’s open to any medium. For this slot it’s possible to construct during the month of July also, to reinterpret the gallery space in its’ entirety into an installation or a series of installations. The gallery will be available for the artist between July and August including the hanging, the opening hours and taking down. Exhibition time is in August. Please consider already when applying, that we need the space back in as it was before the show.
