OpenArt Biennale Search


Time for Open Call. Who will be the artists of OpenART 2019?


450 days left until next OpenArt and we are just now in the middle of planning the 2019 biennial. It’s a lot of work to plan the organisation, structure and procedure of finding the artists, countries to highlight, and possible exhibits.

One step in realizing OpenART 2019 is Open Call that opens today – An application for professional artists to submit their contemporary artworks or new ideas. OpenArt is open for professional artists from all over the world to submit – emphasizing on a wide range of concepts. The application process opens 8:00am 15th of March and continues until 12:00pm 15th of May 2018. You reach the Open Call through this website


The jury consist of people representing different parts of the art world with different experience and perspectives on contemporary art. It is the jury that together will select the Open Call artists that will be representated at the exhibition.

Throughout the years approximately 30-40 percent of the participating artist have been selected from Open Call. The rest have been selected by the OpenArt curators. OpenArt is foremost an outdoor exhibition and for 2019 we search for artworks that challenge the urban space and new ideas on what public art could be.
