Open Call for Exhibitions at Vaasa City Art Gallery 2022


Apply now for an exhibition in the Vaasa City Art Gallery. The deadline for submitting your application is on Sunday 11th of April 2021 at 11.59pm.

Vaasa City Art Gallery exhibits new art forms, experimental art, interfaces of visual culture and current cultural phenomena. The art gallery provides an opportunity to intertwine different cultural phenomena with art. The exhibitions complement the exhibition programme of Vaasa City Museums and enrich Vaasa’s cultural life. In the selection process weigh especially artistic proves, well-prepared exhibition plan and a chance to offer exhibition slots for artists at the start of their career.

One of the exhibition slots in 2022 will be organised in a new co-operation with Vaasa City Cultural Services. Are you proposing an event or a project that is local or crossing boundaries of art or science? No matter where in the field of art or culture you operate, you can now apply for a slot for exhibition or event by checking the box “Cultural Services” in the electronic application. This exhibition/event slot differs from others as the selection will be made by a team from Cultural Services, which will also help in the execution of the project if needed. In the selection special importance is given to audience engagement, event-like or surprising nature, and artistic values.

You can apply for an exhibition slot by submitting an electronic application form between 15th of January and 16th of March. The electronic application should be accompanied by exhibition proposal, photographs of art works, applicants’ CVs and a request about the timing of the exhibition slot. If the application involves moving image or sound pieces, it should be included as a link to a sample of the work or the entire work. The work should be viewable on the Internet (e.g. on Vimeo, YouTube).

The exhibition fee is 750€. The fee includes maintenance of the exhibition, insurance for the artworks during the exhibition, arrangements of the opening and marketing of the exhibition through Vaasa City Museums’ and gallery’s channels. The selected artists are responsible for the production and transportation costs of the works, the installation of the exhibition with the help of the gallery staff and preparing the content for the marketing (e.g. text for the press release, press photos).

Vaasa City Art Gallery is situated in the centre of Vaasa, on the ground floor of the City Hall (Senaatinkatu 1D). The area of the exhibition space is approx. 230m².

Electronic application form, general information about the exhibition space, floor plan and photos. 

All applicants will be informed about selection results on 31st of May 2021 the latest.
