Founded 2008 by designer Deborah Duerr, 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, Galleri Duerr, member of Svenska Galleriförbundet since March 2020, focuses on intercultural meetings between different art forms, artists and generations—national and international, new and established. Since the gallery’s start, it has had an exhibition program focusing on contemporary painting, drawing, sculpture, photography and design, and is today a living forum for exhibitions and performances in various formats.
In the current premises at Embassy House Linnégatan since the fall of 2018, we are the first gallery in Stockholm to incorporate an art gallery within an office space. In addition to the gallery’s exhibition area of 360 sqm one level down, works are also displayed in the nearly 3500 sqm co-working space Embassy House in symbiosis with the companies working there.
We are also a partner gallery on Artsy online resource for art collecting and education. Our vision is to exhibit in a variety of public spaces with interesting collaborations, always on the lookout for new and innovative ways to reach out.
