How does an artist work? What is an artist’s studio? Are there any artist’s studios in your neighbourhood? During one weekend in April, the artists of Oslo offer an opportunity to step inside their studios and have a glimpse of the place where art is created.

Oslo Open is the largest open studio art weekend in Norway and gives the public the opportunity to see art before it hits the museum or gallery. During last years’ festival 375 Oslo artists opened their doors to the public. The stage was set for an intensive weekend full of unique art experiences and opportunities to participate in events such as Open Studios, Children’s Workshops (BOO!), Guided Tours and numerous exhibitions organized by and with Oslo’s artists.

Around 9,000 people visit Oslo Open every year, and the Studio Weekend is free and open for everyone.

Welcome to Oslo Open!
