Oslo Open is an art festival that started on Friday and has its last day today. The main goal of Oslo Open is to give the public the opportunity to interact with artists in a way they have never done before. They get to visit artists at their ateliers and studios to view their work in a whole new light. Guided tours are offered as well to provide extra information about the artists and their exhibitions. There are group exhibition, child friendly workshops, as well as solo exhibitions. There are also free concerts, films and lectures.
Oslo Open also hosts “art ambassadors” who come to Norway to represent their countries’ art and cultural development. The international visitors will have a viewing and a judging of their portfolios.
Oslo Open offers a unique and informal meetings between artists and the audience of artists’ own work. A mythical and otherwise closed room, in countless variations.
With the festival coming to an end we selected some of the highlights of the weekend:
