When Oslo Kunstforening (OK) was founded in 1836, it was the first art institution in Norway. It was founded because the citizens of Oslo wished to support Norwegian artists and start building a local art scene. At the same time, OK saw the importance of showcasing art from the entire world. “In many ways, we work the same way today. The starting point for how we think is that Norway is a part of the world and the world is part of Norway. The art scene in Oslo is the starting point for our content. The place is our viewing point from where we view the world,” says Marianne Hultman, artistic leader and general manager.
