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 and video, as well as installation-based and site-specific work.
The gallery has 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 von Hausswolff and Matts Leiderstam, and giving artists such as Uta Barth, José León Cerrillo, Martín Soto Climent, Ridley Howard, Tony Matelli, Nandipha Mntambo and Xavier Veilhan their first European or Scandinavian one-person exhibition.
Having established itself as one of the leading galleries in Scandinavia, the gallery enjoys privileged relationships with museums and collectors and is also involved in projects in the public space. The gallery recently moved to a new space in the centre of Stockholm and as way of expanding the gallery’s international scope and to accommodate for collaborative and multidisciplinary projects opened a second space in Paris in the spring of 2019, allowing for a closer relationship with the gallery’s international network.
Andréhn-Schiptjenko has for more than two decades participated in international art fairs – Art Basel, Independent New York and Brussels, CHART Copenhagen, Material Art Fair Mexico City and FIAC Paris. It is owned and directed by Ciléne Andréhn and Marina Schiptjenko, who are both active in the art world beyond the gallery, as selection committee-members of art fairs and board members of institutions and the Swedish National Gallery Association.
