Artis is an artist run space. In the early eighties of the previous century an artistic community led by the artists and squatters in 's-Hertogenbosch developed room for experiment by organising a number of exhibitions and cross diciplinary performances.

In 1985 Artis was acknowledged legal status and was housed with help of the local government in a former cigar factory of the industrial era, near the central railway station in 's-Hertogenbosch.

Artis has a monumental, six hundred square metre exhibition space at its disposal, the most conspicuous feature of which is a grid of wrought iron pillars. Artis is run by artists. The organization consists of a small permanent team including an artistic, and an administrative director. Artistically Artis is determined in consultation with a think tank, whose membership changes regularly.
