Wetterling Gallery was founded in Sweden in 1978 by Björn Wetterling. Through a dynamic schedule of exhibitions - with both highly acclaimed, international names, and emerging, Sweden-based artists - Wetterling became one of the leading contemporary art galleries in Scandinavia. We consider ourselves a long-term partner for artists, collectors, institutions, and visitors. By providing a unique and playful entrance to the art world, Wetterling Gallery stands for quality and relevance. Our goal is to make art available for a curious audience.
Historically, the gallery played a pivotal role in bringing key artists - such as Robert Rauschenberg, James Rosenquist or Frank Stella, amongst many others - to Sweden. While remaining central, this mission has now been expanded to promoting Swedish artists on the local and international scenes.
Our main gallery, in the historical Kungsträdgården park in Stockholm, displays seven exhibitions yearly. Additionally, a section of this gallery was converted into a Project Space in 2015, where artists and/or curators are invited for pop-up presentations, further expanding our visual proposals. While being present in Gothenburg for a long period via our showroom activity, Wetterling opened a permanent gallery here in 2022 - celebrating our founder’s roots and the gallery’s longstanding relationships in this part of Sweden.
Our exhibition roster is underpinned by a dedication to education and accessibility. Solo shows are accompanied by catalogues published on their occasion, as well as tailored events created for various audiences. We also provide an affordable entry point for collectors through our online editions shop.
