The Oslo Art Weekend is an annual spotlighting event, which seeks to raise awareness of the vibrant contemporary art scene in the city through a programme of coordinated openings and events. We hope to build on the previous editions, which had great success in bringing new local audiences to Oslo venues.

The weekend 7.-10. of September 2017 will be dedicated to the contemporary art scene in Oslo in a programme that crosses both the city and a variety of contemporary art genres. In a large-scale collaboration, Oslo-based institutions will offer a three day event, collectively hosted by artist-run spaces, private and public museums, art associations, art foundations, and kunsthalles.

Oslo Art Weekend has been organized in response to the thriving and diverse Oslo art scene, and the realization that we as institutions share a local and international audience that has the potential to grow bigger. This weekend will offer opening events around the city, as well as exhibitions, screenings, music performances and talks, in addition to the participating institutions’ regular programmes.

Oslo Art Weekend is in 2017 organised by U.F.O. – Exhibition Guide For Oslo. For information about venues please visit The 2017 OAW detailed program will be announced in August.

Oslo Art Weekend is supported by Kulturrådet.
