HOLDING AN EXHIBITION

Open call to Galleria Sculptor´s exhibition times is held twice a year.

The annual application periods are March and September until the end of the month. The spring applications concern exhibitions in the autumn one and half years away and the autumn applications exhibitions in the spring one and a half years away.

Call for exhibitions in Spring 2024 is open between 1–30 September, 2022. 

The applications are submitted via an electronic application form. The form opens on 1 September 2022. We do not accept applications by email or post.

The applications can be submitted only for one exhibition period at a time (Autumn or Spring). We welcome applications also from working groups. The contact person of the working group submits the application.

The exhibition periods are 4 weeks long, including installation, de-installation, and opening days. There are 3 different spaces one can apply for: the studio, the gallery space, and the whole space (studio and gallery).

All professional artists can apply for an exhibition time at Galleria Sculptor and exhibitions are open for artists of all disciplines. The main focus of Galleria Sculptor´s exhibition is on three-dimensional art.

EXHIBITION SPACE

The exhibition space is in total approximately 118 m2, of which the gallery space with windows is 88 m2, and the studio space without windows is 30 m2.

The height of the gallery space varies from 3,78 meters to 4,06 meters. The height of the studio space is 3,90 meters.

Exhibition Rents:

In the coming years, the Finnish Association of Sculptors is committed to promoting good exhibition practices with the aim to hold rent-free exhibition space and the introduction of exhibition fees.

In recent years, the association has been able significantly to reduce the exhibitions rents with the support of Arts Promotion Center Finland and the City of Helsinki. In 2021–2022, the rent for the entire exhibition space is 600 € for members and 950 € for non-members (reduction 67,24–76,4% from the original, non-reduced exhibition rent).

The rent includes communications, sales, marketing, guarding of the exhibition, press photos of the exhibition by a professional photographer, a virtual presentation of the exhibition, and a video interview of the artist that will be on display at the gallery and in the Galleria Sculptor’s YouTube channel.

If we receive funding to further reduce the rents in the future, the lower exhibition rents will also apply to future exhibition times. The exhibition rents are always determined at the beginning of each year.
