Inventing Artists


Urban neighbourhood culture is seeking group of individuals, ideally diverse in backgrounds, to participate in a community art project in April and May.

The aim is to jointly invent an artist specializing in photography and to find and create her life and work in Oulu and the surrounding area. In this way, the artist who does not exist, but perhaps could exist, is given a voice, as are all of those who invented her. The project consists of guided and independent creative work sessions – working both in small groups and collectively.

How do we invent an artist together?

The group will capture in photos, sketches and texts the life and artistic work of the invented artist. The project ends with an exhibition showcasing the artist's work to the public for the first time. The project is organized in collaboration with Culture Centre Valve’s Urban Neighbourhood Culture, deufert&plischke, D-asema, and Photo North.
