Research Pavilion

Fine arts, concerts, performances, workshops and discussions with an inquiring mindset – every two years, the Uniarts Helsinki Research Pavilion showcases what artistic research is all about. On 2023, the Research Pavilion will take place in Suomenlinna and Helsinki Music Centre in June with a tagline "Puzzled together".

Research Pavilion #5: Helsinki

Originally organised in connection with the Biennale in Venice, the fifth Uniarts Helsinki Research Pavilion will host a series of artist and artist-researcher residencies during spring 2023 and will culminate in an on-location event in June 2023 in Helsinki. The residencies in April and May are organised in cooperation with Uniarts Helsinki, Helsinki International Artist Programme (HIAP) and the Saari Residence maintained by the Kone Foundation.
