“Kunstnernes Hus is one of Norway’s most important exhibition places and disseminators of contemporary art. The building is an architectonic landmark designed by architects Gudolf Blakstad and Herman Munthe-Kaas and is one of the foremost examples of the intersection of neoclassicism and functionalism in Norway.

By being a conscious social actor, we have a responsibility to protect artistic freedom of expression and the place of art in the public eye. With exhibitions, films, talks, concerts, lectures, and seminars, we are a bustling great hall for art and culture. Since it opened in 1930, Kunstnernes Hus has presented major international exhibitions and Norwegian initiatives. Kunstnernes Hus is owned by Stiftelsen Kunstnernes Hus, an independent artist-run foundation established by Norwegian artists in 1930.”
