Under thematic umbrella of ‘Home’, Young Arctic Artists now invites proposals for works and projects for its 2016 edition. Deadline for applications is 20th of May 2016.

Young Arctic Artists 2016 is the first of three international exhibitions organized in Rovaniemi between years 2016-2018 promoting emerging artists working in the arctic.

The aim of this exhibition series project is to map out the scene of young contemporary art in the selected northern geographic area, advance its visibility and to create new networking possibilities and information database for artists, curators and other creative professionals.

Each exhibition is managed by Artists’ Association of Lapland and curated by different emerging curators or curatorial teams. One catalog that presents all three exhibitions, will be created at the end of the project.

Project is funded by the Nordic Culture Fund, The Arts Promotion Centre Finland – The Regional Office of Lapland, and the Artists’ Association of Lapland.
