About the gallery

Established in 2006, Belenius is a contemporary art gallery based in Stockholm.

From the outset the key objective has been to form an intergenerational program supporting emerging as well as more established artists of all media including sound, film, mixed media, photography, painting, sculpture and installation. The artwork whilst diverse in presentation is linked by the artists´ commitment to continuously reassess the position of artistic practices within their wider cultural, social and political frameworks. The program includes solo and thematic exhibitions as well as guest-curated projects. Over the last sixteen years the gallery has developed into a vibrant location for performances and exhibitions in different forms.
