Aalto University artist in residence (Finland)

Aalto University artist-in-residence programme has functioned as a platform for transdisciplinary collaboration since 2011. The programme provides space and time for experimentality, criticality and new kinds of cooperation by giving artists a chance to expand their practice through all Aalto Schools. This year-long production residence aims at producing compelling and inspiring artworks stemming from a dialogue between art and science. At the same time, the residence creates possibilities in assessing different modes of knowledge production from new angles. The residence is open for one artist per year.

The call for artists for the 2019 residence is now open. The residence will be co-hosted by the School of Chemical Engineering and the School of Science. Applications are welcomed from artists who are ready to commit to one-year period in Finland and whose practice engages with the Schools' research nucleus: chemistry, biochemistry, biotechnology, materials science, applied physics, mathematics, computer science, and neuroscience.
