If you are looking for new art experiences - you have come to the right place.
Barcode is becoming the new hot spot for art in Oslo. The Opera House is just a short walk away, and when the new Munch museum and Deichmanske main library opens in 2010, Bjørvika will be the cultural hub in the city.
In Barcode alone, you will find three recognized galleries that shows art of high quality: Kunsthall Oslo, Shoot Gallery and Munch museum on the move (curated by Kunsthall Oslo). You also find Torpedo art book shop here.
The galleries changes their exhibitions regulary, and short distances between the venues makes it easy to experience all three at the same time.
This is both a gallery and art dealership, and Shoot Gallery offers the best within norwegian and international photo art.
– The people that work at Shoot Gallery have backgrounds in art and photography. We want to give all our visitors an exciting experience. Our goal is to convey photo art in a way that is understandable for every person that is curious, says gallerist Helene Gulaker Hansen. She opened Shoot Gallery in Barcode in 2016.
Find the gallery at Trelastgata 17.
Munchmuseet in movement - Kunsthall Oslo
While we await the opening of the Bjørvika situated new Munch museum, scheduled to 2020, Kunsthall Oslo curates exhibitions from the museum's Stenersen collection. The exhibitions are historic and contemporary, separate and group in form, with a focus on painting and what you call traditional art. You will be able to see some of the biggest artists from the 1900s, but also ung, norwegian artists.
