This regional exhibition will look closer at notions of place. The concept is open for many interpretations and approaches, as it is as simple, as complex.
Current institutional structures distribute productions towards sites, places, and contexts through commissions and open calls, where often the artists find themselves dislocated from the site, place and context.
What artistic methods and working processes are there to be found in these boundless place orientated practices? Are the works aimed for a local environment and/or conceived for a global scene? What does this type of art produce on the local level?
Furthermore, these questions draw one to think more broadly around cultures of belonging and displacement today.
The call is thus open for locally based artists as much as artists from the rest of Finland and abroad, from any art discipline.
The Call is for ideas for new works and/or existing works and/or previous works.
The Central Finland Exhibition is dived into two chapters: The first chapter opens in June 2020 and the second, September 2020. It is organized by Jyväskylä Art Museum, Keuruu Museum, Saarijärvi Museum and Jyväskylä Artists’ Association.
The call will be finalized and published the coming week.

Curating in dance is a field of strong expansion and ongoing definition and redefinition.
In the course, we meet different curatorial and artistic practices especially looking at performing arts and performance. We will analyze curating from structural, social, aesthetic and political perspectives and look at its potential and role in current dance- choreography and performance ecology. This course is approaching curating as an artistic practice departing from a wide definition of choreography. Furthermore, the course Choreographing Contexts aims at supporting the student’s own curatorial practice and methods.
From the 1st of January, I´m a member of the Swedish Arts Council Dance Committee. The Swedish Contemporary Dance scene has made some incredible developments in the last years, therefore I look forward to following it more closely in the coming four years. I´m humbled by the trust and I will do my best to contribute in a constructive, at best in a dynamic, manner on these developments.
