Oslo open

Welcome to this year’s opening party with performers B16 and Mariama Ndure, and the announcement of this year’s honorary award recipient.

About the event

Join us to celebrate this year’s open studio weekend – Oslo Open, 27 and 28 April from 12–17. Welcome to the party!

When you go into a studio you get a rare insight into the process and work that goes into a finished artwork. The program ØST KUNST and Nesteren Hasani have curated for this year’s opening party explores likewise the artistic process – in the form of experiments in art, dance, and music. The performers move across genres and expressions. By building bridges between different expressions we also want to create bridges between different parts of Oslo.

We will be guided through the evening by our program host, Felipe “Fela” Orellana. On the agenda is awarding the annual Oslo Open Honorary Award, which the board gives to a person or organisation that has made a significant effort to improve the artists’ working situation, an improvised piece by the dance collective B16, and music by Mariama Ndure.

The exhibition Free Education for All: It is Time is open until 22:00. Take the chance to see the graduation show from the master students at the Academy of Fine Art (KHiO).

The event is free and open to all. Age limit 20 years.
