The kmS organizing team would like to thank all the artists that submitted applications to its 2016 open call. The open call closed at midnight on 23 January.
The response to this year’s open call was similar to previous years with applications from 34 artists and 13 countries including Estonian, Latvia, Lithuania, Finland, Norway, Denmark, Holland, Germany, Slovakia, Spain, Singapore, Austria and the US. While last year we had a surprisingly strong contingent from Latvia, this year the surprise came from Norway, with the most applications after Estonia.
The selection panel – which consists of last year’s guest curator Andreas Nilsson from the Moderna Museet in Sweden, this year’s guest curator Anna Virtanen from Helsinki, Rakvere city artist Teet Suur and our own Siim Preiman – are currently examining the applications and expect to arrive at a final list in the coming days.
The full list of artists for the main exhibition for Kilometre of Sculpture in 2016 will be officially announced in the coming weeks, when our curatorial team have completed all discussions with the artists and can confirm their participation.
Kilometre of Sculpture (kmS) is an international exhibition of contemporary art that uses the public space of regional towns in Estonia as its primary venue. The organisers invite an international guest curator every year to assemble artists and work with our open call to form the main exhibition around a cohesive theme. In addition, kmS now also delivers a satellite program of smaller exhibitions, performances and artist talks. The satellite program aims to maximize the potential for kmS to contribute to cultural and creative vitality and exchange between regional towns across the Baltic Sea region.
