Konstnärshuset is a Venetian-inspired palace owned by artists. The building, inaugurated in 1899, was designed by the architect Ludvig Peterson. Konstnärshuset is centrally located in Stockholm’s most exclusive shopping area close to Norrmalmstorg. The exhibitions at Konstnärshuset are managed by the Association of Swedish Artists, Svenska Konstn.rernas Förening (SKF).The two galleries, which are situated on different floors, encompass 200 square metres and the ceiling of the larger gallery is an impressive seven metres. Our project Sektionen deals with equality and diversity issues, as Konstnärshuset is an art space where the traditional meets the contemporary.
