Located in the heart of Oslo, Kunstnernes Hus (Norwegian for "Artists' House") was established by artists in 1930 and is considered one of Norway's most important contemporary art institutions.
The building is an architectonic landmark designed by architects Gudolf Blakstad and Herman Munthe-Kaas and is one of the foremost examples of the intersection of neoclassicism and functionalism in Norway. In addition to exhibitions, Kunstnernes Hus, The Artists' House in English, offers a wide program of lectures, debates, open studios, guided tours, and film screenings in the in-house cinema. Free guided tours on Sundays at 1 pm. Private tours can be arranged. Free entry for artists and art students.
