Rehearsing Hospitalities

Rehearsing Hospitalities is Frame Contemporary Art Finland’s public programme for 2019-2023. Please find events below.

The picture shows two details of an installation. On the right is a pleated pink blouse covering thin bars on the chest. The collar of the blouse is closed with a choking knot and a red tongue protrudes between the bars on the chest. On the left is a mannequin whose head is covered by a blue pleated blouse with a checkered square coming through the collar. The corners of the cube have red lips and the edges of the collar protrude through them as tongues.

Happening now

Gathering for Rehearsing Hospitalities Spring 2021 is an online and onsite programme that runs from mid April until the end of May.

All events

The programme consists of different forms of offline and online events such as talks, performances, gatherings, readings, and podcasts. It connects artists, curators and other practitioners to discuss and debate urgent questions. Events are organised and curated in collaboration with a wide range of partners, from institutions to organisations, and individual artists and curators. Amongst others, we have collaborated with Asematila collective, AV-arkki, Helsinki International Artists Programme (HIAP), m-cult, and Museum of Impossible Forms.

The events strengthen long term collaborations and ways of redistributing curatorial and cultural power. Events are built upon an ethos of plurality and multiplicity concerning content and working models. We share long discussions and debates with our partners and participating artists to formulate common and joint perspectives and approaches. We have worked with many interconnected questions from hospitality towards different ways of knowing to multiple ways of understanding access.
