The congress party will take place at Astrup Fearnley Museum. The museum is home to the Astrup Fearnley Collection, a collection of modern and contemporary art counted among the most significant of its kind in Northern Europe.
It focuses on acquiring individual, ground-breaking works. Young American artists used to dominate, but significant voices from Europe, Brazil, Japan, China, and India are now included. The museum complements works from the permanent collection by rotating exhibitions with internationally renowned artists.
The museum building is designed by the renowned Italian architect Renzo Piano. It is made up of three pavilions that reside under one distinctive glass roof, which is shaped like a sail. The building nods to its maritime surroundings in other ways as well: cable rigged steel columns mirror the masts of the sailboats in the harbour close by, while the building's silver grey cladding bears witness to seaside weather exposure.
The museum is flanked by Tjuvholmen Sculpture park, also designed by Renzo Piano.
Cost: NOK 750
