Live-Streamed Studio Visits

Ragnhild Brochmann (writer of the popular column Estetikeren in Morgenbladet), Marie Saxeide (art mediator/ content marketing manager at Atelier, a new Norwegian platform that enables artists to sell their art directly from the studio), Marianne Hurum (Oslo-based painter with several years of engagement working for artists’ rights) and Marthe Elise Stramrud (artist and director of Oslo Open) stepped into the role of reporters during 2021´s Studio Weekend and gave the audience a chance to tag along for informal and fun meetings in artist’s studios around the city.

We will take our digital audience on more live-streamed visits in 2022. Stay tuned!
