When the Chief
Curators present their proposed concept and ambitions for the Oslo Architecture
Triennale 2019 (OAT 2019) in Oslo on Wednesday 28 February, it marks the start of a year and a half of research, insight and planning towards the opening of the Triennale in September, 2019. Details of the Triennale Core Programme and its participants will be launched in the spring of 2019.
The proposed concept for the Oslo Architecture Triennale 2019: "Common Futures"
The 2019 Chief Curatorial team consists of British architect Maria Smith and Canadian designer and educator Matthew Dalziel of Interrobang, London, British critic and think tank director, Phineas Harper, and Norwegian urban researcher and artist, Cecilie Sachs Olsen.
The Core Programme of the Triennale rest on six stands: An exhibition, a performatory platform and public space installation, an international conference, an international academic forum, a publication and a digital essay series. In their concept proposal for OAT 2019, the Curators wish to exploit the various stands' possibilities of reaching out to and involving the Triennale's audience in exploring, investigating, considering and perhaps accepting non-growth-based strategies for planning and building our societies and cities in the future.
"From now and up until the Triennale opening, the Curators will work closely with OAT’s member organizations, who are committed to producing much of the core programme. The audience may also expect to be involved in the process, as we will engage them in the discussion through a series of events during the autumn of 2018 and spring of 2019,” says Hanna Dencik Petersson, Director of OAT.
Events will be announced on this website and on Facebook.
