Andréhn-Schiptjenko

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.
