Public Art Norway (KORO)

KORO’s main purpose is to ensure that as many people as possible are able to experience high quality art in public spaces both indoors and outdoors nationwide. In addition, we bring art to outdoor spaces, where the artists’ expressions form part of the general exchange of opinion, identity formation and management of memorials. 

KORO has principal management responsibility for the Norwegian government’s collection of art in public spaces. The collection comprises around 7,000 works of art that are on display in a total of 920 different places in Norway and at Norwegian embassies and consulates abroad. This management responsibility requires close cooperation between KORO and the numerous institutions that display our works of art. 

Given the vast scope of work involved in the production, mediation and management of art, KORO is a major employer for artists, curators, producers and art consultants. Both the production and the management of art for buildings and public spaces require specialised expertise.
