The Personal Stories

Q&A series with gallerists in the Nordics

In this new series of Q&As, we talk to the founders and directors of leading galleries from across the Nordics about the personal stories behind them becoming gallerists and the principles they work by.

Please meet: Jeanette Steinsland from Steinsland Berliner (Stockholm), Börkur Arnarson from i8 Gallery (Reykjavík), Peder Lund from Peder Lund (Oslo), Susanne Ottesen from Galleri Susanne Ottesen (Copenhagen), Ben Loveless from Galerie Nordenhake (Stockholm), Else & Gitte Johannesen from SPECTA (Copenhagen), Claus Andersen from Andersen's (Copenhagen) and Emilie Magnus from OSL contemporary (Oslo).

Stay tuned for more Q&A releases via the CHART Journal over the coming months.

“Not many children say that they want to be a gallerist when they grow up because the job doesn’t exist. It is something that you make and define for yourself.”
