100 curators from across the globe will take part in the event, part of a five-day exploration of Norway’s vibrant cities. Three days will be in Oslo, two in northern Norway’s Tromsø,

Some of Oslo’s art scenes to be explored in this year’s programme will be the Astrup Fearnley Museum, Ekeberg Sculpture Park, Henie Onstad Kunstsenter, Kunstnernes Hus, and the National Museum of Contemporary Art.

The programme will also showcase Oslo’s numerous innovative artist-run spaces such as 1857, Fotogalleriet, Kunstnerforbundet, Melk, NoPlace, Oslo Kunstforening, Podium, and Schloss.

On 21st May, the Oslo National Academy of the Arts will provide a public symposium. This will coincide with centenary of the first Sami Congress in 1917.

Curators of this public symposium are Office for Contemporary Art Director Katya García-Antón, those behind OSLO PILOT Eva González-Sancho and Per Gunnar Eeg-Tverbakk, and  and representative of the IKT board Vanessa Joan Müller.

An evening event pulling together hosts and organisers will round off Oslo’s programme.

In Tromsø, the focus will be on Sami and Northern issues. A showcase of Northern Norway’s intricate art scene will be carried out through presentations at the Academy of Contemporary Art and Creative Writing, the North Norwegian Art Centre (NNKS).

The  Røst AiR residency programme – which hosts 8 to 10 artists between June and August on the island of Røst in the Lofoten Archipelago – also forms part of this.

Further presentations will take place at places including the Center of Northern Peoples in Troms County’s Samuelsberg, and at the Sami Center for Contemporary Art in Finnmark County’s Kárášjohka (Karasjokk).

The International Association of Curators of Contemporary Art Congress runs from 19th to 23rd May.
