The first call for KampusART artists is now open!


The first open call of the Kupittaa Campus arts programme has started. We are looking for an interesting and bold idea for a contemporary artwork with a combination of an open call for portfolios and an invitational art competition. The artwork will be produced on the yard deck which will be constructed between TUAS’ new campus building and Visitor and Innovation Centre Joki.

At the first stage, an open call for portfolios is announced. Interested artists and artistic teams working in Finland can enrol by sending pictures of their works, their résumés and arguments why they would be qualified to produce the artwork on the site. The application period is 3.6.-31.7.2019. From those who have submitted their portfolios by the deadline, 3−5 artists and/or artistic teams are selected to the second stage i.e. the invitational art competition, and sketches on the artwork or entity are ordered from them.

The call for portfolios is a part of the KampusART arts programme, which brings art to the indoor and outdoor premises of the new building on Kupittaa campus. High-quality and bold art increases the attractiveness of the new campus and constructs the identity of the building and region. The Kupittaa Campus arts programme is coordinated by TUAS Arts Academy, and it is implemented in cooperation by TUAS and Turku Technology Properties.
