Oslo Open Art Festival 2017

Oslo Open is Norway’s largest art festival and allows the audience to see art in the artist’s studio. During the event, 380 of Oslo’s artists open the doors to the public. It is an intense weekend filled with unique art experiences and the opportunity to attend events like Open Atelier, Children’s Oslo Open (BOO!) Guided Tours and a number of exhibitions arranged by the city’s artists.

How does an artist work? What is a studio? Visit Oslo Open and listen to the artist convey the thoughts behind his own art as well as see the art before it comes to gallery or museum.

The festival annually has around 9000 visitors, open to all and has free entrance.
