The founding of Andréhn-Schiptjenko in 1991 marked the start of a new generation of galleries in Scandinavia. Andréhn-Schiptjenko has consistently been committed to working on an international arena and to the long-term representation of emerging and established contemporary international artists from all over the world.
The gallery has organized and curated exhibitions that have become seminal in the Nordic context, successfully launching the careers of Scandinavian artists such as Annika Larsson, Matts Leiderstam and Annika von Hausswolff and giving artists such as Uta Barth, Siobhán Hapaska, Nandipha Mntambo and Xavier Veilhan their first European or Scandinavian one-person exhibition. In recent years the gallery programme has expanded to working with the estates of Francesca Woodman and Siri Derkert, successfully renewing interest in their work.
Having established itself as one of the leading galleries in Scandinavia the gallery enjoys privileged relationships with museums and collectors. In recent years the gallery activities have expanded to encompass art-advisory services for larger projects in collaboration with architects and to handling commissions for public sculpture.
The gallery now occupies one of the largest gallery spaces in what has become a hub area for contemporary art in Stockholm. The gallery has for many years participated in international art fairs such as Art Basel, Art Basel Hong Kong, MARKET Stockholm, CHART Copenhagen, Zona Maco and most recently The Independent, Brussels.
