The Spring Exhibition was established in 1976 by approval of FFF’s annual general selection. As an opposition to The Autumn Exhibition, The Spring Exhibition was to be organised by FFF to ensure the inclusion and exposure of lens-based art practices in the contemporary art field. It is an annual group exhibition based on open submissions selected by a jury of fellow part professionals. Since 2010, The Relief Fund for Visual Artists (Bildende Kunstneres Hjelpefond) have annually announced and awarded the Art Photography Prize, Norway’s largest art photography prize, to the most significant artist displayed at the exhibition.

Forbundet Frie Fotografer (FFF –The Norwegian Association of Fine Art Photography Professionals) was initiated and established by Knut Evensen and Robert Meyer in 1974, in a time when lens-based art sought to be acknowledged as an artistic medium. FFF has since then become a nationwide members association dedicated to working purposely for its members with both art politics and art education, and also mediating the importance of art photography in Norway.

Fotogalleriet is Scandinavia’s first fotohalle aimed at exhibiting photography as a critical art form. Since it was established in 1977, the institution has been devoted to exhibiting local and international lens-based art practices and analysing the rapidly expanding nature of a field unrestricted by technological and aesthetic shifts. Since 1978, Fotogalleriet has collaborated closely with FFF in the production of The Spring Exhibition.

More information about the exhibition, artists and program will be released in 2020!
