Fjord Oslo is a free art festival that transforms Harbour Promenade in central Oslo into a large-scale outdoor exhibition of light.
By taking art onto the streets for three nights, Fjord Oslo invites to a social, powerful and inclusive experience of art and light.
Bringing together and commissioning an international programme of renowned artists, this annual celebration is a broad exploration of light art.
From projections onto landmark buildings to intimate installations, interactive light sculptures and immersive video work, the programme of the first edition is dedicated to art that invites conversation about nature and our environment.
Fjord Oslo was founded with a wish to create a positive, inclusive, social and open cultural event for everyone in the city of Oslo and bring people and art into the streets in the dark time of the year. We present the best of contemporary international light art and invite to an inspiring experience of wonder and reflection. By locating our festival in the Harbour Promenade we highlight Oslo’s unique combination of a modern city and eternal nature and promote Oslo as a vibrant, welcoming and contemporary art capital.
