Initiatives for Individuality gives a content and concept driven introduction to the Finnish contemporary art scene. The selection of galleries and art spaces showcases a variety of actors from the independent to the commercial, from the agency to the collaborator. With this focus, the project presents how the multifaceted scene facilitates for and develops contemporary art, its processes and productions. 

The participating artists are internationally exhibiting, conceptually individual and methodologically distinct. All their practices have a dialogic relation to a site of operation. With the variety of mediums the project takes into account the countless, cutting-edge installation possibilities at the UNTITLED.
