About Blank Space

Blank Space is an ambitious creative space in Oslo that works in countless aspects of the visual art and design community.
We are a meeting place for the creative and the productive. We are a safe haven for the curious and the strange. We are a Blank Space for what the visual art and design community needs.

 

The best way to know who we are is to have a chat with us! Email us at liz@blankspaceoslo.com or stop by one of our events, so we can tell you more personally.

Our goals:

 

Break down the barriers in art: 

Blank Space works with every type of person to reassure them that art is for everyone, regardless of finances, background, education, or job. Rich or poor, young or old, artist or not - everyone is welcome.

 

Diversify art: 

Blank Space represents art that isn't commonly found in a gallery setting to help give these forms of art validation in the public eye. Though we believe the definition of art is much broader, we focus on areas such as illustration, animation, comic books, graphic design, street art, film, game design, and concept art. We also work with traditional artists who explore contemporary applications.

 

Strengthen education: 

Blank Space offers a wide variety of workshops, lectures, and events to broaden the creative resources for artists in Oslo. These high quality arrangements vary in topic, theme, and level so that everyone can improve their skills in visual art and design.

 

Support production: 

Blank Space encourages action, not just talk. 

 

Challenge yourself: 

Through our studios and events we promote taking risks in art, pushing skills past their current level, and helping others to be the best artist / designer they can be. We help people recognize their mistakes while providing a nurturing environment in which to fix them.

Blank Space consists of three parts:

 

  • Our GALLERY, which represents both international and Norwegian artists.
     

  • Our WORKSHOPS, which grant both entry level opportunities as well as advanced resources for existing artists.
     

  • Our STUDIOS, which offer 3 office spaces to visual artists as well a full silkscreen studio for rent.
     

  • Our COMMUNITY, where we work within Oslo's creative scene to strengthen the market from the inside.
