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 a social, powerful, and inclusive experience of art and light.

Bringing together and commissioning an international program of renowned artists, this annual celebration is a broad exploration of light art. From projections onto landmark buildings to intimate installations, site-specific light sculptures, and immersive video work, the program of the second edition is dedicated to art that invites conversation about human impact on the future of our world.

The exhibitions stretch from Aker Brygge to Rådhusplassen, and new this year will be Bjørvika and the area around the Opera house. See exhibition map here.
