We have postponed our regular public program and hope to open as usual again on May 9th. In the meantime, we have installed a group exhibition with a selection of works by gallery artists. The works are new, previously unseen or that have been shown in other contexts. The exhibition runs through May 2, but may change over time. For the time being, we have the gallery open by appointment only. Please come and visit us if you have the possibility. Email or call us (+46 8 660 43 53 or +46 708 106 906) to make an appointment.
The exhibition is extended until August 1. Open Wednesday July 31 and August 1 between 2–6 pm!
This exhibition is a personal selection of works that all formally resemble the portrait. Some of them are made as portraits of specific people, while others merely use the human face as a means of expression. Common to all drawings, paintings and sculptures is that the depicted a person is the main motif of the work. The oldest artwork in the exhibition dates from the 17th century, the last one was finished only a few weeks ago.
Vi har glädjen att bjuda in till en gemensam visning av fyra utställningar på gallerierna i Konstakademiens hus. Konstnärerna berättar om sina respektive utställningar.
Niklas Eneblom, ”Why Can’t There Be a Mountain on the Horizon”
Dan Wolgers, "Notes from a Studio"
Galleri Magnus Karlsson, Fredsgatan 12
We are pleased to present Niklas Eneblom’s eighth solo exhibition in the gallery. Why Can’t There Be a Mountain on the Horizon presents a new series of paintings made on drafting film. The works of the exhibition have an evocative and dreamy nature. As the title suggests, it alludes to a longing for something else. Eneblom looks back at previously visited places, and events from the past. In the process he rediscovered the drafting film as surface to apply paint upon:

OLLE SCHMIDT– Tales from Nowhere
Cries and Whispers is a group exhibition presenting Swedish contemporary painting and sculpture. Here, eight artists, born in the 60s, 70s and 80s, are invited to represent a figurative art movement that has received great attention in Sweden and internationally. The title, borrowed from Ingmar Bergman’s film Cries and Whispers from 1972, echoes in the exhibition. There is a strong relationship between these artists, but also crucial differences in their approach. Both the intimate, vulnerable whispers and the distant, powerful cries can be traced.
We are pleased to be a part of Chart Art Fair in Copenhagen for the fifth consecutive year. At this year’s edition of Chart we will show a wide variety of paintings in a group exhibition with selected works by 13 of the gallery artists.

Galleri Magnus Karlsson is pleased to announce a group exhibition that will be on display throughout the summer. In conjunction with the inauguration of Nationalmuseum’s temporary space with the exhibition Carl Larsson - Friends and Enemies in our building (The Royal Academy of Fine Arts), we will show Time Waits for Us . This exhibition presents new works by all of our gallery artists.
Galleri Magnus Karlsson is pleased to announce Niklas Eneblom’s seventh solo exhibition in the gallery. Thousand Layered Colander presents paintings made over the past year.
The title Thousand Layered Colander refers to our need to manage a sometimes malfunctional everyday life with recurrent insufficient repairs. The water flows slowly through the holes of the colander, although there are a thousand layers. It can serve as a picture of survival from day to day or of staying afloat in life.
Galleri Magnus Karlsson is pleased to present Niklas Eneblom fifth solo exhibition at the gallery.
Galleri Magnus Karlsson is pleased to present the exhibition IN FRAMES with new works by the artists; Niklas Eneblom, Maria Nordin and Ulf Lundin.
The title can allude to framed paintings at an exhibition, but rather highlights the artists' relationship to film, working practices and regulations.
