Galleri Andersson/Sandström was founded in 1980 and is today owned and operated by Stefan Andersson and Sara Sandström Nilsson. The gallery focuses on international contemporary art and represents both well-established names and young emerging artists. The gallery has a special interest in outdoor sculpture and public commissions.

The gallery in Umeå is located in a fully renovated 650 square meter boiler room in the Umedalen area. The exhibition space consists of one large, completely open room with a ten-meter ceiling.

Since 1994, the gallery has worked together with real estate company Balticgruppen to arrange one of Europe's most important sculpture parks, Umedalen Skulptur.

Galleri Andersson/Sandström opened its second venue, in the gallery district in Stockholm's Vasastan, in 2008. In the summer of 2012 the gallery moved to a 500 square meter space in the same neighbourhood

The gallery has a unique and diverse exhibition programme in both Umeå and Stockholm and also participates in a number of international art fairs.
