Galleri Syster

Galleri Syster is a partner of the Luleå Biennial 2018: Tidal Ground.

is an artist-run gallery that opened in 2006. The gallery functions as a meeting place for art, conversations, experiments and new ideas. Since the beginning, the focus has been on Swedish contemporary art, which they have created a new scene for in Norrbotten. In recent years, the gallery has also broadened its programme to include international artists.

Galleri Syster rests on feminist foundations, working parallelly to the larger institutions. For the last five years they have also run Galleri Lillasyster, a space for young people interested in learning about and discussing contemporary art and meeting with professional artists. Some of the members in the group will be working as art guides during the biennial.


The gallery is adapted for wheelchair users.


Gallery Syster is located in central Luleå. The gallery is easily reached by foot or by bus to Luleå Varvet (Varvet).
