Stockholm art gallery guide

Stockholm has a vibrant, diverse art scene with many high-quality private galleries. At any time of the year, you can easily spend a weekend touring exhibitions, listening to talks and looking for that perfect piece of art to adorn your living room. Here are some of the best art addresses in town.

Bukowskis

This traditional auction house, founded in 1870, has recently worked hard to attract a younger audience by organizing not only auctions for modern art but also for ­vintage design and fashion. This is a great place to find that mid-century Scandinavian chair you’ve been dreaming of, a piece of photo art or indeed a Chanel bag for a fraction of the price of a new one just a stone’s throw away on fashionable Birger Jarlsgatan. Even if you’re not looking to buy, it’s a joy to wander around the beautiful space in ­Berzelii Park.

Stockholm Gallery District

The easiest way to get a feeling for Stockholm’s varied art scene is to pay a visit to the gallery district formed around Hudiksvallsgatan in Vasatan. Seven top notch galleries are located in this hub for contemporary art and there’s always something interesting to see. Spend a few hours admiring the work of artists from Sweden and abroad. Keep an eye on the Stockholm Gallery District Facebook page for updates on openings and artist talks.

Steinsland Berliner

Conceived in 2008 by Jeanette Steinsland and Jacob Kampp Berliner, this young gallery is a favorite among Stockholm’s cool, culturally conscious crowd. Here, you can see varied exhibitions from performance to photography, graffiti and paintings, featuring emerging and established Nordic and ­international artists.

One of the city’s newest art spaces is also one of its most beautiful, located in a 17th century palace on a quiet street behind Kungsträdgården in the center of town. Three exhibitions are shown simultaneously in an 800sq m apartment, with new ones introduced every three weeks. Previously, exhibitions have included blue chip art from names like Pablo Picasso and Andy Warhol, as well as contemporary Swedish names, such as Carsten Höller and Anders Krisár.
