One of Europe’s largest contemporary art spaces, Malmö Konsthall is known for staging the best in modern art. Challenging, engaging, and always well thought out, this is one of Sweden’s best galleries for enjoying both Nordic and international art, by both established and up-and-coming artists.
Gothenburg’s largest space for independent artists, Konstepdemin is home to 130 professional artists working in various mediums, such as visual arts, filmmaking, dancing and much more. Essentially, it’s a meeting place for the city’s artists, where culture comes alive.
While Lohme’s main focus is on exhibitions, the gallery also serves as a forum for creative meetings and various other events. The gallery has a strong digital presence, and exhibits (and represents) artists from around the globe, as well as Swedish artists. Creative solutions to logistical challenges is one of its speciality areas.
A bit of New York, a bit of rural life, Not Quite is a growing cultural centre in the wilds of Northern Dalsland. In an old brick paper factory artists, designers and craftspeople have set to work in studios and workshops, and what was an old disused space is now a hub of activity, with a gallery, an arts and crafts boutique, and exhibition spaces. There are also a variety of events and a lovely café. It’s well worth the trip to see what is going on outside the more established art scenes of the cities.
Located about halfway between Malmö and Helsingborg, in the picturesque fishing village Borstahusen. It contains a permanent exhibition about the town, as well as one of Sweden’s best art galleries, perched on the edge of the sea. While you might expect some touristy seascapes think again – this may be a quaint and charming little town but like in much of the rest of Sweden, art is taken seriously.
Mollbrink’s presents a wide range of works from the mid-1800s on through to today. Both classical and modern paintings are represented, as well as sculpture, photography, and graphic art. What makes the gallery truly stand out is its specialisation in Anders Zorn, one of Sweden’s most beloved and successful artists.
