Galleri Duerr believes art exhibitions are great ways to tell important stories of our time. With a clear vision of making contemporary art more accessible, since 2014, Galleri Duerr has been operating as a mobile gallery investing in cross-cultural meetings between different forms of art, artists and generations – national and international, emerging as well as established.
As of November 2018, we are entering a new collaboration as exclusive curator at Embassy House Linnégatan in Stockholm, thus making Embassy House our new home base.
In June 2019, the gallery was prominently featured in Östermalm Direkt:
We are also a partner gallery on both Artsy and Artnet, online resources for art collecting and education. Our mission is to exhibit in a variety of public spaces with interesting collaborations, always on the lookout for new and innovative ways to reach out. Our exhibitions with Lydmar, for example, focus on highlighting female role models in photography.
Since Galleri Duerr’s start in 2006, it has had an exhibition program focusing on contemporary painting, drawing, sculpture, photography and design. The gallery is a living forum for performance and exhibitions in various formats.
Galleri Duerr was founded by Deborah Duerr, who studied design at the University of Cincinnati College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning. Before moving to Sweden in 1984 to start her own design firm, Deborah worked with design studios in San Francisco and New York. Deborah is also a newly elected member of the board of Design Sweden.
