Art Ii Biennial


Art Ii Biennial 2020 invites artists from Finland and abroad to study, interact, and collaborate in the international socially-engaged biennial from 10-14 June 2020.

The Biennial presents site-specific art works created by international artists in the region of Northern Ostrobothnia, Finland.

The concept of the Art Ii Biennial 2020 is built around earth.


Environmental artists, media artists, community artists and art-science collectives: the media of the art is not limited.

Social engagement refers to many kinds of participatory approaches. Artists can collaborate with local communities, facilitate dialogical processes, create interactive pieces and engage with global audiences through media.

The public space in Ii is the art venue: artists will work in a variety of parks and some artworks can be presented indoors.


The Biennial covers production and travel costs, up to 2000 euros in total per selected artists and artists collective.

Accommodation is offered in Ii during the Biennial.

There is also a possibility of a residency period at KulttuuriKauppila artist residency for extended stays related to community projects.

The results of the projects will be presented at the Art Ii Biennial between 10-14 June 2020.
