CFHILL

CFHILL is a modern art gallery located in a 17th-century palace in central Stockholm. Art by well-known international artists is displayed in five different galleries on two floors. Every exhibition is approximately on show for one month so art buffs tend to visit regularly. The theme of each exhibition varies from 20th-century art by Die Brücke to present-day Swedish sculptors, from Andy Warhol’s prints to carpets from Märta Måås Fjetterström’s weaving studio. From oil paintings via video art and photography to Carsten Höller’s gigantic toadstools. And herein lies the beauty of CFHILL, the personally chosen and carefully curated mix of art by artists from different genres and eras creates a vibrant and long-lasting, and enriching, art experience.

Just around the corner from CFHILL, in Kungsträdgården you’ll find Wetterling Gallery. Founded over forty years ago, Wetterling Gallery is one of the leading galleries highlighting contemporary Scandinavian art.

Andréhn – Schiptjenko

Galleri Magnus Karlsson

Magnus Karlsson started his gallery in Västerås in 1990, and after seven years and a good reputation as a gallerist, he moved to Stockholm. The gallery is located in the basement of The Royal Swedish Academy of Fine Arts. Galleri Magnus Karlsson has focused on up-and-coming Swedish artists and the list of now well-known artists is long. It includes, but is by no means limited to, Mamma Andersson, Helene Billgren, Jockum Nordström and Jens Länge. Don’t forget to visit the exhibitions in The Royal Swedish Academy of Fine Art, when you’re anyway in the area.

Stockholm Gallery District

Around Vanadisplan a short distance from the city center you’ll find Stockholm Gallery District. Six exciting galleries in the area make it well worth the trip. This is where you’ll find emerging young artists as well as internationally famous artists from various genres. Below are a couple of our favorites from Stockholm Gallery District. Follow the link for a map of all the galleries and have a wonderful time!

Galerie Nordenhake

Galerie Nordenhake’s main gallery is located in Stockholm Gallery District, although they also have a smaller venue called Galerie Nordenhake Focus, on Karlavägen 20. The gallery was founded in Malmö in 1973 by Claes Nordenhake and moved to Stockholm in 1986. In 2007 it was one of the first galleries to open up on Hudiksvallsgatan in Stockholm Gallery District. The room is almost uninviting in its austere style with white walls and concrete floors. Here it is the art that speaks, and it is for the art you visit. Amongst the represented artists you find well-known swedes such as Ann Edholm, Olle Bærtling, and Lap-See Lam, check the website for ongoing shows and exhibitions!

GSA Gallery

GSA Gallery is actually two galleries next door to each other. The galleries frequently show the work of international artists but their strength is the Swedish artists represented and/or exhibited. Here you find the cartoon-like images of Jan Håfström, Michale Johansson’s mesmerizing assemblages of everyday objects, enter the disturbing universe of Ulf Rollof, watch video art by Roy Andersson, and get caught up in Jacob Dahlgren’s stripes, all depending on what’s currently on display. No two visits to these large industrial premises are alike.

Cornelia Sojdelius Gallery

Cornelia Sojdelius Gallery is another one of the younger generation galleries. Cornelia Sojdelius, who owns the gallery together with musician Eric Gadd, is herself an artist and has chosen to emphasize young female artists working in many different media. If you think you know what watercolors, textile art, or ceramics are, think again! The artists here will give you a whole new perspective on art, and you can be sure to leave the exhibitions inspired, amused, and possibly a little bit disturbed.
