The unique UK based contemporary art prize for Finnish artists emerging on the international scene, returns to Beaconsfield Gallery Vauxhall in association with the Finnish Institute in London. For 2020 Below Zero offers a substantial production prize worth up to £15,000.

From the many interesting proposals, the jury chose five candidates that they felt had responded most directly to the theme and would be best served by the opportunity.

We are please to announce that the shortlisted artists for 2020 are Sara Bjarland Teija and Pekka IsorättyäTuula Närhinen, Kati Roover and Elsa Salonen.

In Whose Eyes?: Practice in Dialogue

4th July – 5th August 2018

Taking the act of looking as a starting point, In Whose Eyes? explores questions of female subjectivity, representation and power in contemporary Western culture. Who is made visible – or excluded – and how they are represented in culture is highly political and impacts on people’s lives in numerous intersectional ways.
