This autumn’s public events scheduled as part of Frame’s Gathering for Rehearsing Hospitalities will be postponed to spring 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic. In September we will launch a brand-new publication together with a series of online readings.
To guarantee the safety of participants, all meetings held as part of our International visitor programme for art professionals will take place online. However, there will be no changes to Frame’s upcoming rounds for travel and project grant applications.
Publication on hospitality and access will be launched in September
As the planned Gathering for Rehearsing Hospitalities event has been postponed, there will be a variety of online options for accessing the Rehearsing Hospitalities programme.
We will launch the Rehearsing Hospitalities Companion 2 publication during a celebratory online event at the end of September. The publication is the second publication in a series of readers published by Frame Contemporary Art Finland and Archive Books.
Rehearsing Hospitalities Companion 2 gathers together conversations on questions of access, knowledge and hospitality in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.The publication containing 16 contributions will be released digitally in open access-format with hard-copies.
At the online gathering to be held from September to October, the publication’s contributors and its two editors, Yvonne Billimore and Jussi Koitela, will delve into issues concerning different forms of access and hospitality in society and art.
The outline of the conversations will be announced during September.
