About the Nordic Art Association

The Nordic Art Association (NKF) is an nonprofit organization dedicated to the visual arts in the Nordic countries, aiming to create networks both locally, nationally and internationally. NKF was founded 1945 with branches in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden as well as the autonomies of Faroe Islands, Greenland, Åland and the Sámi People.


NKF runs an international residency programme, in order to stimulate artistic production, and a programme of public events to promote exchange of ideas between artists, curators, researchers, and the public. NKF also runs temporary projects with the aim of promoting interdisciplinary collaborations and mobility with global reach. NKF's board consists of artists and curators.
