OpenART Art Biennale (Örebro, Sweden)

OpenART is Scandinavia’s biggest public art bienniale and takes place in Örebro, Sweden. The city centre is filled with unexpected art that makes people feel happy, disturbed and provoked. Contemporary art from all over the world is showcased for almost three months in the city and offers unexpected encounters.

OpenART is a unique event that turns the city upside down with unconventional art, celebrating bold ideas and promoting unusual expressions. This call is open to both individuals and groups in various disciplines. The organisers welcome projects “in situ” that respond to our city. New ideas or fully developed artworks and installations can be submitted.

This biennale offers an exciting platform that enjoys national and international media exposure as well as our social media boost. You as an artist have a great opportunity to show your work to a large and curious audience. During the biennale, the city of Örebro is temporarily transformed into a huge outdoor art arena.

Small or large - artworks that can radically transform the city, artworks that deal with a variety of concepts, - in situ, visually impressive, open, innovative, political, sensitive or mind-blowing are all welcomed. A jury of OpenART experts will select 45 artists. Invited artists will receive an artist fee of 1,000 EUR, as well as transport, travel and accommodation support. Artists carry responsibility for their own installation; OpenART will provide basic tools, service support and assistants when needed.(Medical insurance is not included in the artist fee)

Deadline: 2 August (be aware that there is a 300 SEK fee)
