Curatorial Program for Research visiting the Nordics

During two weeks in August and September of 2023, Frame, together with international partners, is hosting seven international curators in Sápmi, Norway, Sweden and Finland as part of the Curatorial Program for Research 2023. The visit to Finland is part of Frame’s International Visitor Programme.

The 2023 edition of the Curatorial Program for Research, titled (Re)Presentation in the Nordics brings seven curators to the Nordics to research the local art scenes to get a better understanding of the complex history and current political situation in the Nordics. Following the program, the participating curators are invited to propose an exhibition with artists and issues they have come across during the visit.

The curators selected to the programme are Myriam Amroun (Algeria), Emilie Choi Sin-yi (Hong Kong), Natasha Marie Llorens (France/Sweden), Jasa McKenzie (US), Magdalena Testoni (Argentina), Emiliano Valdés (Colombia/Guatemala) and Caimin Walsh (Ireland).

Frame supports international networking within the Finnish contemporary art field by inviting art professionals to visit Finland as part of our Visitor Programme. Our guests include international curators, researchers, cultural producers and art museum professionals, who are offered the opportunity to connect with a variety of artists, curators, and organisations in Finland.

Since the Curatorial Program for Research was launched 2015, the New York-based organization has funded over 80 artist and curatorial fellowships. CPR visiting programs foster cultural and artistic exchange and international collaborations that take place in the months and years following the visit.
