ABOUT

Christian Larsen was founded in 1996 in Stockholm, Sweden. Over the last two decades, Christian Larsen has built a reputation for its dedication to artists and presenting a dynamic and rigorous exhibition programme of both emerging and established artists from Scandinavia and Internationally. Over this time the gallery has fostered close and cooperative relationships with museums and curators in both Scandinavia and worldwide.

The inaugural exhibition in 1996 took place at Christian Larsen’s first gallery, located in the Östermalm district of Stockholm, with work by internationally renowned American artist Sally Mann. Exhibitions with major international and Swedish artists followed including shows by Louise Lawler, Ross Bleckner, William Wegman, Lynn Davies and Miriam Bäckström’s debut exhibition. 

In 2007, Christian Larsen moved to a 2,700 sq. feet location in the Stockholm gallery district on Hudiksvallgatan with an exhibition of work by renowned Argentinian artist Tomás Saraceno. Since then, the gallery has continued to forge an ambitious program of exhibitions with both Swedish artists such as Joakim Ojanen, Mårten Medbo, Anton Alvarez, Anna Camner, Karin Broos, Matti Kallioinen and Max Book, and international artists, many of them exhibiting in Sweden for the first time. These include exhibitions by John Körner, Gavin Turk, Robert Mangold, Robert Mapplethorpe, Sam Samore, Horst P. Horst, Rose Wylie and Frank Bowling. 

In the summer of 2018 Christan Larsen opened a second space in Falsterbo, Sweden with the group exhibition One Summer Night. This second home for gallery presents smaller more focused exhibitions at selected times throughout the year and creates an exciting additional outlet for the galleries growing programme. In Autumn 2019 the gallery will relocate to Sturegatan 28 in Östermalm.
