OpenART is a public art biennial and takes place in Örebro, Sweden. During twelve summer weeks contemporary art from all over the world is showcased in the public space. It is a unique event that turns the city upside down with unconventional art, encouraging bold ideas and promoting unusual expressions. We are now searching for artists with different backgrounds, art mediums and expressions to fill our city with artworks. OpenART invites a broad and curious audience to experience the art regardless if they are acquainted with art or not.
We search for a diversity of artworks that can transform the city with different conformations and concepts. Artists can submit with an already existing artwork or a new idea. OpenART is an exhibition that takes place in the city centre and the art will be placed outdoors available for public interaction day and night during the exhibition period. We see possibilities for a wide range of art mediums and techniques but are particulary looking for artworks for the open space and in particular new ideas on what public art can be. Invited artists will receive an artist fee of 1000 EUR and transport, travel and accommodation support.
You may consider a modest donation — however much you can afford, when it comes from the heart, it’s the kind of gesture that makes us warm with appreciation.
