Since its inception in 1991 Andréhn-Schiptjenko has consistently been committed to working on an international arena and to the long-term representation of emerging and established contemporary artists from all over the world working with painting, sculpture, photography, film and digital media as well as performance, installation-based and site-specific work. The gallery has for more than three decades organized and curated exhibitions that have become seminal in the Nordic context, successfully launching the careers of Scandinavian artists such as Cajsa von Zeipel, Gunnel Wåhlstrand, Annika Elisabeth von Hausswolff and Matts Leiderstam, and giving artists such as Uta Barth, Cecilia Bengolea, José León Cerrillo, Martín Soto Climent, Ridley Howard, Tony Matelli and Xavier Veilhan their first European or Scandinavian one-person exhibition. Included in the gallery programme are also artists of art historical relevance, such as Siri Derkert, a trailblazing, female modernist whose work continues to influence new generations of artists and Julio Le Parc, one of the central figures in the Op-art movement.

Carl Kostyál

Carl Kostyál opened his eponymous gallery at 12a Savile Row in Mayfair, London in 2010 after a decade of private dealing and advising. He launched his first Stockholm space, Isbrytaren, at Igeldammsgatan 20 in 2013 and in 2016 moved to the former German Embassy at Artellerigatan. In May 2021 the gallery opened a new exhibition space, Hospitalet, in the 18th century mental asylum formerly known as Danvikens Hospital, in collaboration with Gullringsbo Konstsamling. In addition to the London and Stockholm programme, Kostyál commissions artist projects at his home in Milan.
