Calling for Curator: Oslo Architecture Triennale 2019

The Oslo Architecture Triennale (OAT) seeks a Chief Curator, theme and concept for its seventh edition to be held in Oslo, Norway, during autumn 2019. Individuals or collectives of any nationality and country of residence are openly invited to send their proposal in English.

With OAT 2019, the Triennale aims to continue its search into the future:

"As a physical manifestation of political systems, culture and social structures, architecture plays an important role in how we understand and shape our societies. In a time where democracy and current systems of power are being challenged and change is an increasingly present and accelerating force in our global and local societies, OAT 2019 wishes to raise a discussion on the role and relevance of architecture in the future," the guidelines say.

The Curator will have primary artistic and academic responsibility for the core programme of OAT 2019, including the development of its conceptual and thematic framework and research. The Curator will work in close collaboration with the Triennale's partner institutions to develop and produce the different parts of the core programme of OAT 2019.

Application deadline: 18 October, 2017 (23:59 CET)

As a triennial event, OAT strives to develop a content of high quality over a course of three years. The Triennale therefore aims to not only display, but also explore and investigate issues of architecture and urban development through alternative and interdisciplinary projects and practices.

In 2016, the Oslo Architecture Triennale manifested its position as one of the world’s important arenas for dissemination and discussion of architectural and urban challenges. This is something the organization aims to maintain in 2019.
