About the Nordic Art Association

The Nordic art association (NKF) is an organization of visual artists in the nordic countries aiming to create networks. NKF was founded in 1945 and consists of 9 sections, representing Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden as well as in Faroe Islands, Greenland, Åland and the Sápmi.

Management and administration

A section has got the chief responsibility and the chairmanship during two years and calls to and arranges an Association meeting. After this another section takes over the chairmanship. NKF appoints workingteams for special projects ordered by the Association meeting.


The Swedish Section

The Swedish section 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. The board of the Swedish section consists of representatives from the Swedish Artists’ National Organization, the Swedish Art Critics Association (AICA), Svenska Konstnärernas Förening Konstnärshuset, the Swedish Sculptors’ Association. Additional board members are chiefly recruited from the sustaining member organizations of the Swedish section.
