Titanik Galleria Open Call

Titanik is happy to invite Finland-based and international artists, artist groups and curators to submit their exhibition, event and other artistic project proposals for the gallery’s 2025 programme. In 2025, Titanik’s programme will feature five-week exhibition periods intertwined with shorter events that include concerts, performances, reading circles, book launches, artist talks and other projects. 

Titanik wishes to support artistic experimentation, aesthetic and conceptual attunements to current discussions in present-day society. It welcomes projects that challenge dominant narratives and disciplinary boundaries, revisit and reimagine histories, and subtly intervene in our societal currents. Titanik aims to support work that strives to crack and crumble established social and cultural normativities, imagining alternate ways of relating to each other.

Titanik offers

The gallery space is free of charge, and Titanik offers an extensive range of AV equipment, gallery support and a small artist fee. Please, note that the gallery does not cover production, transport, or travel costs.

Selection procedure

Arte’s board will make the Open Call selections in collaboration with this year’s invited experts. The board includes Anastasia (A) Khodyreva, Outimaija Hakala, Anna Tahkola, Rooa Paldanius, Isto Rahkila, Inari Sandell and Antti Tolvi and is joined by Sumugan Sivanesan and Saara Mahbouba.

Titanik aims to engage with every proposal equally without any presuppositions or biases, and attention is given to everyone’s needs. No form of harassment or discrimination is tolerated at Titanik.

How to apply

Apply by sending us your proposal by email. The application must include:

  • name and pronouns
  • contact information
  • preferred language of communication
  • exhibition/event proposal (max 2 000 characters)
  • preferred time period for exhibition/event
  • portfolio (max 5 pages)
  • any supporting visual material (max 5 pages)
  • CV (max 2 pages per person)

Name your file titanik_opencall2025_your surname. Send the application as one single pdf file (max. 4 Mb) to titanikgallery@gmail.com with the subject line Open Call 2025.

Please, clearly state in your proposal why your exhibition should take place at Titanik.

The selection committee will place equal emphasis on visual material and text.

The application language is English. For the majority of the committee members, English is not a native language but a short-hand in professional communication: the committee does not expect to receive applications written with proficiency in English. However, if you are not able to submit a proposal in English, please contact us. 

We are working on the accessibility of our physical and digital spaces, but the 2025 open call is currently unavailable in a format accessible for applicants with visual impairments. Please, get in touch with us directly for any assistance.

Application deadline is Sunday 12.5.2024 at 23.59. The selected projects will be informed of the selection by the end of June.

For further information, please contact Saskia Suominen, director@arte.fi, +358 40 594 3013 (Calling time: Mon–Fri 10 am – 4 pm)
