Galleri Format Oslo participating at Collect: The International Art Fair for Contemporary Objects


An annual highlight of Europe’s creative calendar since 2004, Collect brings together 35 galleries from four continents for a celebration of making, extraordinary in both scale and scope. 

Museum-quality works and installations from hundreds of the most talented makers in the UK, USA, South Korea, Japan, France, Norway, Italy, Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands and Sweden will offer visitors and collectors a multidisciplinary overview of the people, processes, materials and ideas defining international craft in 2018.


Galleri Format Oslo was founded in 1991 and is a leading gallery for contemporary crafts in Norway. The gallery is an exhibition and sales venue of the finest artistic quality within ceramic, textile, metal, jewellery and glass. The gallery aims to strengthen the position of Norwegian contemporary craft internationally and through working with both established and emerging artists the gallery reflects the various tendencies in contemporary craft today. The gallery’s goal is to challenge established norms while highlighting key values in the field by actively bringing a wider spectrum of artistic practices in craft art to the fore. Our exhibition program consists of established artists and aspiring talent and we work with both national and international artists.


At Collect 2018, Gallery Format Oslo will present works by 10 artists working in the field of material-based art: Liv Blåvarp, Kari Håkonsen, Steen Ipsen, Vidar Koksvik, Elisabeth von Krogh, Nina Malterud, Kari Mølstad, Trude Westby Nordmark, Ann Beate Tempelhaug and Gunilla Maria Åkesson.
