Premiere of «Atelierbesøk med Oslo Open»
– a series of artist portraits in video format
What is a good studio, and what is its importance for the work that an artist creates? And what is the driving force behind the choices an artist makes? Oslo Open meets twelve artists in their workspace: the artist studio!
This spring Oslo Open has produced a series of twelve artist portraits in video format. The series will premiere on Saturday 17th of April at 11:00 to mark that this year’s studio weekend has started. A new episode will be aired every Saturday throughout the spring and summer.
We have portrayed twelve artists from the fields of visual arts and contemporary crafts, ranging from well established to recent graduates.

Guided Studio Tours for Small Groups
Every year Oslo Open organizes guided tours to the artist’s studios – a simple and fun way to get to know some of the artists and their practises. The tours last between 1,5 to 2,5 hours and take place in various parts of the city. Let our skilful and nice guides show you the way!
Due to the extended ban on events in Oslo, the guided tours have unfortunately been cancelled.
BOO! for Children and Youth
BOO! is Oslo Open’s program directed towards children and teenagers between 0 and 18 years. We arrange workshops planned and run by participating artists. They give you a unique chance for diverse and fun encounters with art, adapted to suit different age groups.
Unfortunately we have to cancel this years BOO! Due to high infection rates and out of consideration for the artists’ preparations, we have chosen not to carry out the workshops. But do not despair, we will come back stronger next year!
Atelier – Buy Art Directly From Artists
Oslo Open has an ongoing collaboration with the mobile application Atelier. Through Atelier you can already now come in contact with many of the artists who participate in Oslo Open. In the application you can explore thousands of art works and buy art directly from artists.
