Galleri Yamanashi opened in Stockholm’s old town, Gamla Stan, in 2014 with an inaugural exhibition of Issey Miyake’s work entitled ‘Magical Textile’.

The gallery’s mission is to keep traditional handicraft techniques alive through cultural exchange, and to support younger artists and makers by bringing their work to a wider audience through exhibitions, workshops and competitions. Our central location enables a wide, multi-national audience to discover these talented artists and their work.

As well as introducing Japanese artists to a European audience, we host exhibitions by a variety of Swedish and European artists and makers as well as Japanese artists who live and work in Europe.

This wonderful, historic space is available for rent for events and exhibitions.
