Cecilia Hillström Gallery was founded in 2012 in the gallery district at Hudiksvallsgatan in Stockholm and is owned and managed by Cecilia Hillström. Since its inception, the gallery has established itself as one of the leading galleries on the Scandinavian contemporary art scene. The gallery works with well-established and emerging artists and is committed to long-term representation. After the relocation to a larger space in the same district in 2019, the program has expanded and the gallery now presents 10–12 curated exhibitions each year.


Artists represented by the gallery are frequently engaged in solo and group exhibitions and surveys in Sweden and internationally. Recent important exhibitions are Anna-Karin Rasmusson and Per Wizén at Malmö Konstmuseum, Lovisa Ringborg at Pro Artibus in Finland, Per Wizén at Moderna Museet in Malmö, Tova Mozard and Mats Hjelm at House of Sweden, Washington DC, Carl Boutard and Kristina Matousch at Museum of Artistic Process and Public Art in Lund, Sweden, Linda Hofvander at Thielska Galleriet, Stockholm, Carl Boutard at the Reykjavik Art Museum, Iceland, and Sigrid Sandström at Bonniers Konsthall and Västerås Konstmuseum, Sweden, to name a few.


Cecilia Hillström Gallery has over the years successfully launched emerging Swedish artists like Johan Bergström Hyldahl, Leif Engström, Katja Larsson, David Molander and Linnea Rygaard. At the same time, it represents artists who over their careers have exhibited at prominent Nordic institutions such as Moderna Museet, Borås Konstmuseum, Norrköpings Konstmuseum and Kunsthall Trondheim, Norway, as well as at international institutions such as Whitechapel Gallery, London, Museu de Arte Moderna, Rio de Janeiro, Walker art Center, Minneapolis, PS1 and Brooklyn Museum of Art, New York.

The gallery’s strong relationship with major institutions and museums as well as private collectors is key in its ability to support and promote its artists. Working with artists who uses a large variety of media, the gallery is also engaged in public projects as well as art projects in the real estate sector. In addition, the gallery frequently presents its artists at Nordic art fairs such as MARKET, Stockholm, and CHART in Copenhagen. Furthermore, Cecilia Hillström Gallery has participated in art fairs in Barcelona, Vienna, and Istanbul.
