Oslo Kunstforening was founded in 1836 by the poet J. S. Welhaven, book mongler Johan Dahl and future Prime Minister Fredrik Stang following the model of the Copenhagen Art Society (1820s), and the kunstverein’s in Dresden (1828) and Düsseldorf (1829).
Oslo Kunstforening was formed by the art interested public to ensure a permanent exhibition space for visual art in Norway - a few years before the National Gallery was established.
Oslo Kunstforening's main goal is to support emerging Norwegian artists and present international artists that has not been shown in Norway before. We have done that for the past 180 years.
