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.
