Curator Anni Fahler and artist Timo Wright are launching ARS – Artist Residency Swap, a new artist exchange pilot programme in the Benelux. The idea behind the programme is a platform where artists can swap both their work space and home with another artist from a different country. The goal is to create a space where artists all over the world can connect through their profile in order to not only share their work and living space, but also experiences and insights.

The activity between Finland and the Benelux begins with a pilot exchange programme partly funded by the Finnish Cultural Institute for the Benelux, and involves artists from both areas swapping their homes and work spaces.

Participating artists:

Conrad Willems, visual arts (Ghent/ Belgium) and Sivi Valima, visual arts (Helsinki/ Finland)

Eva GioloPauline Miko, visual arts (Brussels/ Belgium) and Katariina Guthwert, jewellery design (Helsinki/ Finland)


ARS – Artist Residency Swap is a side project by the Finnish gallery Unknown Cargo. The gallery was created in 2011, and began expanding its activities to the Nordic countries in 2015. The name of each artist is revealed only after their exhibition, letting the artist create freely and without expectations.
