melk who?



MELK is an artist run initiative for new Scandinavian photography. The aim for the initiative is to raise awarness of the scene of contemporary photographers in the region and the position of the medium today, in a contemporary context. We do this through exhibition projects in-house, external curatorial projects, art and book fairs, book projects etc.

We are currently supported by the Arts Council Norway.
