Artists and Curators Working Together: How and With Whom?

This seminar will focus on the relationships between artists and curators. From viewing these relationships through the perspective of power dynamics, care, and sharing, the discussions during the seminar will raise questions about how artists and curators, as cultural agents, shape, manage, and nurture these collaborative relationships. 

The program is open to all and free of charge. For accessibility information about The Finnish Museum of Photography, please visit  

The seminar will take place at Konttori, The Cable Factory, Tallberginkatu 1 A, Helsinki.
