Orebro OpenArt is the largest art festival in the Nordic countries with a, maybe familiar, but always winning message when it comes to art – it should make bridges not walls.
When the venue is the whole city, all are invited and it is completely free, and you can expect a lot to happen, as it does. The organizer invites both famous and up-and-coming artists to present their art. The fact that the exhibition is open to the public creates numerous interesting discussions, and it really reveals how important art is to the wider audience. Visitors’ reactions to art pieces and, more than that, audience engagement in the creative process reveal new horizons on both sides.
Orebro Open Art is held every two years and they have international guests invited by the organizers. For 2019, they decided to represent the Nordic countries (in 2017 it was Japan and Colombia). The Nordic countries, consisting of Iceland, Norway, Denmark, Finland, and Sweden, are somewhat new to OpenArt, and the curators will have a tough task to create the public space for the exhibition.
Finally, with OpenArt Kid, Orebro Open Art is a whole family event so you can have a full day of entertainment, whatever you decide to do during almost two whole months of great art!
