Open call

Artists are invited to send in works

OPEN CALL: Stavanger Art Museum invites artist who work in Rogaland to participate in an exhibition in the autumn of 2020.


The pandemic has huge consequences for the field of art. Artists and institutions are severely affected by the situation, exhibitions are postponed and projects are cancelled. Stavanger Art Museum wants to respond to this situation by creating an exhibition that presents the rich artistic activity in our own region. All artists active in Rogaland are invited to submit proposals for works they would like to present in the exhibition. It will not have an overall theme. We encourage artists to send proposals for 1–5 works that have been produced in the last year.

To apply to participate: Fill in the application form in this link and send it to us along with photos of the work/works (upload the photos in the form). Submit your proposal by 23 August 2020. Incomplete or late applications will not be evaluated.

All artists must be able to deliver their works to the museum during week 45 (a specific time will be scheduled for each artist). The exhibition will be in the museum’s main gallery room and adjoining rooms. We can accommodate about 30 artists. Most walls will be dark grey due to preparations for future projects. It will not be possible to paint walls or build constructions based on artists’ wishes. All artists must retrieve their works after the exhibition closes. Works must be picked up at the art museum early in week 1, 2021.


The exhibition’s curator group consists of Vibece Salthe, Hanne Beate Ueland, Helga Nyman and the newly-elected leader of Rogaland kunstsenter (art centre), Jane Sverdrupsen. The curators will evaluate the proposed works and put together the exhibition.

Artists who have sent proposals can expect a reply by the end of week 39. The curator group does not have the capacity to give reasons for why certain works have been rejected.

Remuneration will be at a flat rate of NOK 5 000,- in addition to an honorarium of NOK 5 000,- (a total of NOK 10 000 per participating artist), regardless of how many works by a given artist are included. Installation photos of the exhibition will be taken and shared with the participating artists.

The exhibition period is 6 November–27 December 2020, with the opening on Friday, 6 November.
