Title of this year's exhibition:                      "I FOUGHT, THEREFOR I AM"   

(reflecting the national theme for this year's pride  which is  H I S T O R Y )

This exhibition is organized by Pride Art,  the fourth cornerstone of the Oslo Pride festival. Shortly after the deadline for registration the 1st of March, all registered artists will shortly receive a confirmation email with all necessary information of how to prosed.  

This is a sales exhibition. All types of art is included (painting, sculpture, music, video, dance, performance, literature etc)

The exhibition is funded mainly through public funds. Each artist pays a registration fee of 500 NOK to cover the service at the opening show. The exhibition is planned and organized by a group of 16 volunteers who work through the year in the Oslo Pride system. Exhibitors are expected to participate in the rigging, execution and down rig of the exhibition. If you do not have the opportunity to participate, you can get others to contribute or request an exception.

This is an open exhibition, that is, we do not limit who is accepted to make a most open, diverse and including exhibition as possible in real pride spirit. As a pride event, we seek diversity also by being open to both professionals and amateurs on the same ground.

Shortly after the registration deadline, you will receive an email with a link to a digital form where you register what you want show in the exhibition. In this mail you will be presented by guidelines for what you can exhibit, for example limitation of of wall space by artist who exhibits visual arts, stage time at performing arts, length limitation for video, floor space for sculpture etc. The curator group will, in dialogue with the artists, decide if there is room enough or not and find a way to prioritize.

Pride Art will in the following week make our own slogan based on this theme, which will be announced on Facebook and here. You are welcome, but not obligated, to let yourself be inspired by the theme in your work for this year's exhibition. . 

Do you have questions?
