All professional artists can apply for an exhibition time at Galleria Sculptor for  exhibitions that focus on spatial and three-dimensional art. Open call to Galleria Sculptor’s exhibition times is held twice a year.

The annual application periods are in March and August–September. 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.

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).

Exhibition Rents:

In 2023, Galleria Sculptor is rent-free for artists.

The Association of Finnish Sculptors is committed to promote good exhibition practices with the aim to hold rent-free exhibition space and the introduction of exhibition fees.

The exhibition rents are determined at the beginning of each year. If we receive in the future funding  to maintain rent-free spaces, the rent-free policy will also apply to future exhibition times. At the moment, already lower exhibition rents (see below) will apply to exhibition times in 2024.

In recent years, the association has been able significantly to reduce the exhibitions rents with the support of the 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).
