Welcome to the opening of the Young Artists' Society's (UKS') anniversary exhibition! For 100 years, the artist organization has been a key player in Norwegian cultural life. UKS was founded by artists, for artists in 1921 and has had close ties with Kunstnernes Hus throughout its history. The questions addressed in the anniversary exhibition are as diverse as the history itself, but the answer is what has always defined UKS: collective organization.
At the opening, a manifesto by Marius Heyerdahl will be performed and Suburban Dad and Espen Iden will play some tunes.
