|In 1973 Claes Nordenhake opened his first gallery in Malmö, in the south of Sweden. A decade later, in 1986, the gallery moved to Stockholm where it found its new facilities in the prestigious building of The Royal Academy of Fine Arts. During the Malmö years the gallery became famous for introducing a new form of "concretist" art with names such as Schoonhoven and Morellet. |
With the 80s the Gallery eventually came to focus more and more on painting characterised by its fundamental, and often monochrome, aspects and the Swedish audience was in those years introduced to paintings by Marioni, Mangold, Hafif, Umberg, and Sims. In its new location in Stockholm there was also an excellent possibility to show full-scale sculptures, such as the works by Ulrich Rückriem and Richard Serra, which became something of a "trademark" for Galerie Nordenhake. Also in the 90s Claes Nordenhake has introduced many important artists to the Swedish and in many cases international public, such as Esko Männikkö, Mirosław Bałka, Leon Tarasewicz, Antony Gormley, and Walter Niedermayr.
With the arrival of a new millennium the Gallery took yet another important step in its development by opening Galerie Nordenhake Berlin. With two operations going on simultaneously − in Berlin, as well as Stockholm − the gallery has perfected its trade mark exhibition policy: a well balanced mix of established names on the contemporary art scene, interspersed with new exciting artists from Sweden, Germany, and the United States.
