Outgoing loans policy

Throughout the 50 plus years Henie Onstad Kunstsenter has existed, its collection has continued to grow, now consisting of more than 8000 objects. Henie Onstad Kunstsenter wishes to cooperate with other institutions through a loan program that increases public access to the collection and reach new audiences.

Loan requests

Loan requests should be made as early as possible, and with a minimum of 9 months notice for international loans, and no later than 6 months for loans within Norway. For complicated and extensive loans, please allow for longer notice.

The loan request should be adressed to the Director of Henie Onstad Kunstsenter Anne Hilde Neset, and sent digitally to conservator and outgoing loans registrar Hilde Berteig Rustan (hbr@hok.no).

  • Description of the exhibition scope and concept
  • List of the requested works of art, with Henie Onstad Kunstsenter's inventory number included when possible
  • A completed and signed Facilities Report

  • Transport costs, including courier costs and per diem when required
  • Conservation treatment when neccessary
  • Framing when neccessary

The borrower will be informed of additional costs, should there be any, as early as possible.

Loan conclusion

Loan requests are considered by the loan committee. The loan committee’s conclusion is primarily based on the condition of the works, our capacity and the climate and safety of the exhibition venue.

Works already on display or in fragile, poor, or unstable condition making them unsuitable for display or transport will not be lent.

Please expect 2- 3 months for the evaluation of the loan.
