The gallery is open Tuesday-Friday 12-5pm and Saturday 12-4pm.
Galleri Brandstrup Oslo was founded by Kim Brandstrup and Marit Gillespie in 2000 at the historic site of Madserud Gård on Skøyen in Oslo. In March 2010 we were the first gallery to move to Oslo’s new gallery district, Tjuvholmen, where we are still located.
Our stall of artists includes a selection of the driving forces within Nordic contemporary art. Additionally we pride ourselves on working with some of today’s most groundbreaking and internationally renowned artists, such as representing Marina Abramović and Joseph Kosuth in Scandinavia, a result of our close collaboration with the Sean Kelly Gallery in New York. Our artists are selected with conviction, based on their unique conceptual and visual expression. The gallery displays monthly exhibitions. We also organize projects and shows with museums and other galleries, besides participate in art fairs; the past years we have been showing at The Armory Show and Art Brussels. In 2011, Brandstrup organized an exhibition by Mark Quinn, alongside White Cube Gallery in London and Kistefos Museum. We have displayed solo exhibitions with John Baldessari and Kohei Yoshiyuki in joint efforts with Sonnabend Gallery, Marian Goodman Gallery, Turid Meeker Contemporary Art and Yossi Milo.
The gallery has gained expertise in providing contemporary art in public and private spaces on commission. We emphasis on site-specific and thematic alteration, in collaboration with in stall and out sourced artist. Our projects are dedicated to art as an expression of human creativity, which is consequently a significant factor in our experience of our everyday life. The essential components in our commissioned projects are planning and production, with a consistent quality control throughout the process. We work in close collaboration with our artists, the clients and potentially architects, interior designers and landscapers.
In 2014, Galleri Brandstrup along with Eli Lilleng Ertvaag formed BGE Art Projects in Stavanger, Norway. BGE Art Projects provides contemporary art consultancy to companies, public and private collectors. Please visit www.bgeart.com for further information.
