UKS (Unge Kunstneres Samfund / Young Artists’ Society) is an Oslo-based institution for contemporary art and a Norwegian membership organization. Founded by artists for artists in 1921, it has since established itself as one of Norway’s core experimental venues for the arts; convening, exhibiting, and supporting critical voices of contemporary artists, with the objective of having both an artistic and political impact within and beyond its region.
UKS is situated in Oslo’s city center in an approx. 120sqm exhibition space. In addition, since autumn 2017, a series of UKS solo exhibitions mounting new works by young artists has employed both the UKS grounds and part of the neighboring arts venue Kunstnernes Hus.
UKS is a non-profit organization. Arts Council Norway is our principal funder. To download the UKS bylaws (in Norwegian only), click here.
Opening hours (during exhibitions): Wed-Sun 12-5pm
