Galleri Syster 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 in parallel 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. At Galleri Syster paintings by the artist Augusta Strömberg (1866~1954) are for the first time exhibited in a greater art context, side by side with contemporary works by Susanna Jablonski and Ana Vaz.
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). Please visit Luleå Lokaltrafik's website for timetables and other information: www.llt.lulea.se.
