OSLO BIENNIAL 2019
In May 2019, the capital city of Norway, Oslo, will hold the first edition of the Oslo Biennial. Curated by Eva González-Sancho and Per Gunnar Eeg-Tverbakk, sui generis biennial is the product of a research project carried out by the curators themselves: OSLO PILOT.
Encouraged and financed by the Cultural Affairs Agency of the City of Oslo, on the one hand, the Nordic Biennial will focus on the latest research and studies of contemporary artists, mainly emerging and residents of the host city.
On the other hand, the event will be the starting point for a program of artists -both national and international- own. As a result, the Oslo Biennial highlights the key ambition to embrace and promote artistic production that artistic city.
In addition, the Biennial will use the Myntgata 2 building, located in the historic center of the capital, as the central headquarters and the nerve center of it. Likewise, said building will have a visitor center and will function as a center of thought and discussion of topics related to art.
