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. UKS is a non-profit organization with the Arts Council Norway as our principal funder. To download the UKS bylaws (in Norwegian only), click here.
