OpenArt is an exhibition that takes place in the city center of Örebro every second summer. Contemporary artworks are displayed outdoors and available for public interaction day and night during the exhibition period. For each edition the festival presents a large number of artists working in a wide variety of art mediums and techniques. The majority of the artworks are sculpture and installations but we welcome artists working in all disciplines, interested in the intersection between art and the public.
OpenArt is primarily an outdoor exhibition, which is promoted in this year's selection of artworks. Artists who intend to apply to OpenArt 2024 should apply with artwork that can be placed outdoors.



Sustainability in mind

OpenArt is run by a small team working in a warm hearted manner, able to offer technical advise and some assistance during the production process in the workshop space at our facilities. As most of the projects exhibited at OpenArt are of temporary character we aim to use material carefully and in a sustainable and cautios way when producing. It is important to have an overall plan of the material used before, during and after the exhibition. For example, can materials be collected for a project and then recycled after the exhibition?

The artists

We require the artist to have the knowledge to manage their chosen materials and production themselves. Each artist is expected to lead the technical work installing the art work in a secure and responsible way. This also includes staying within the agreed budget and deadlines set in consultation with the team.

The selection process

After the Open Call has closed, the applications are analyzed and discussed by an invited jury that makes recommendations. It is then up to OpenArt to initiate dialogue with the artists and decide on the selection for the 2024 exhibition.
