7 – 23 May 1971
Documentation of the Spring Exhibition at Bergens Kunstforening, 7–23 May, 1971. It was the first time UKS presented their traditional “Spring Exhibtion” outside of Oslo. The show was proposed by Bergens Kunstforening, who with their larger exhibition space could help push UKS to present a more diverse range of artistic practices within the orginisation. This multiplicity was supposed to be generated by dropping the jury selection, as had been the case with the big UKS show in Stavanger in 1970, but as the space in Bergens Kunstforening could only hold approx. 150 flat works plus sculptures, it was decicded that a so-called “unjuryed” exhibition with representation right for all UKS members was not possible.
