About the competition:


Sculpture Point Ekebergparken is a sculpture competition for new artist who work with three-dimensional art.

The competition is developed by Ekebergparken, C. Ludens Ringnes Foundation, Talent Norge, Sparebankstiftelsen DNB and Norsk Billedhuggerforening. 

Over the course of four years four different artist will be chosen to produce and display their own three-dimensional work in the park's Villa Garden. 

The nominations of the artists is done by Ekebergparkens Art Council in collaboration with art representatives from the leading Norwegian art institutions. 

For each art work the park will develop and hold specialized mediational programs, seminars and workshops.

The competition is developed with the aim to strengthen and lift the public conversation surrounding three-dimensional art.

We hope that each individual artwork will in a positive way challenge our perception of what three dimensional art can be.
