Skarstedt was founded in 1994 by Per Skarstedt to present a program of museum-level exhibitions by contemporary European and American artists. Recognized for its critically acclaimed historical exhibitions, Skarstedt works closely with artists and estates to re-unite seminal bodies of work and offer focused surveys of pivotal moments in the history of twentieth-century art. Representing some of the most celebrated artists of their generations, Skarstedt also mounts ground-breaking exhibitions of new work, which continue to challenge the boundaries of contemporary identity.
