About the gallery
Galleri Andersson/Sandström was founded in 1980 and is today owned and operated by Stefan Andersson. The gallery focuses on international contemporary art and represents both well-established names and young emerging artists. The gallery has a special interest in outdoor sculpture and public commissions.The Umeå gallery is located in the city centre of Umeå, next to the river and Kulturhuset Väven. Our visiting address is Västra Strandgatan 9. Currently we are not having any public exhibitions planned and we are therefore open by appointment only.
Galleri Andersson/Sandström opened its second venue, in the gallery district in Stockholm’s Vasastan, in 2008. In the summer of 2012 the gallery moved to a 500 square meter space in the same neighbourhood. In August 2015 the gallery opened an additional show room of 135 sqm and in 2017 we added another 180 sqm showroom on Hudiksvallsgatan 4, making us the largest gallery space in Sweden.
Since 1994, the gallery has worked together with real estate company Balticgruppen in Umeå to arrange one of Europe’s most important sculpture parks, Umedalens Skulpturpark, and in 2016 we initiated a project together with the Royal Djurgården Administration where we during summer presented solo exhibitions at Djurgården in Stockholm. The starting year we showed Tony Cragg, 2017 the honour went to Eva Hild and in 2018 works by Jaume Plena were exhibited. From 2020 onwards Prinsessan Estelles Kulturstiftelse has taken over this project.
The gallery has a unique and diverse exhibition programme in Stockholm and also participates in a number of international art fairs.
