About the Nordic Art Association

The Nordic Art Association (NKF) is an organization dedicated to the visual arts in the Nordic countries, aiming to create networks. 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.


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 artists and curators.
