Finnish version:
House Gamesin erikoisuus on vuosien saatossa ollut näyttelyjen oheisohjelma, johon on kuulunut taiteilijapuheenvuoroja, tanssi- ja performanssiesityksiä, konsertteja ja erilaisia kotiin liittyviä ajanvietteitä, kuten peli-iltoja. Tänä vuonna House Gamesissa pääsee taas nauttimaan monenlaisesta oheisohjelmasta, kun asunnossa vierailevat muun muassa Enkeli Ensemble, Alex Jønsson, Sami Liuhdon taudinkuva, Linda & Aura. Viikon aikana järjestetään myös Charles Wilkinsonin “No Fixed Address” -elokuvan näytös. Kotimaiseen tapaan myös yllätysohjelmaa on tiedossa.

Vuonna 2017 näyttely laajenee kodin seinien sisäpuolelta myös kerrostalon ullakolle, johon toteutetaan valokuvanäyttely Cairon katoilta. Tuomme jyväskyläläiselle kerrostaloullakolle toisen maailman toiselta puolelta maailmaa. 

Tapahtuma on maksuton.

House Games 2017 Proposal Deadline: March 31st

Project proposals are now being accepted until deadline: MARCH 31st, 2017
We are welcoming proposals in all areas of the arts including performance, sound, visual arts, writing and installation. 


If you are interested in submitting a project proposal for the next House Games exhibition (2017), please send a free-form application including a project description, and project related image(s) if applicable (92dpi, minimum 10 x 15cm, maximum 5 images) to the email address below.

The next House Games triennial will be held in November 2017.
House Games strives to provide a non commercial, rent-free space for a broad range of artists to show new work on the theme of home. House Games provides and is responsible for: the exhibition space, the maintenance of the space, reception of the public, the hanging/installation of the artwork, invitations/posters, a catalogue and local publicity, at no cost to the artist. Upon negotiation, House Games might also pay for installation materials, digital printing and/or the return costs of the artwork and/or travel fees.

This project is a non-profit, artist-run event. The amount of financial aid House Games is able to supply is dependent on any possible grants and other financial support which varies from year to year. If a proposed project is accepted, the exhibiting artists are responsible for most of their own personal (show-related) expenses. Insurance of the artwork to, from and during the exhibition is the artist’s own responsibility. Artists are strongly encouraged to apply for project grants for the creation/transportation of their own projects from local institutions in their own towns/countries. House Games will gladly write you an official invitation upon demand, and help out as possible.
