Listen to founder Björn Jakobson telling the story behind Artipelag.
Art, Activities, Archipelago
The name ‘Artipelag’ is a combination of Art, Activities and Archipelago. It says a lot about what we can offer, but it does not tell it all. Our intention has been to create a destination of high international quality – with boundary-crossing art exhibits, inspiring activities and great food.
There is ample space here – about 32,000 square feet – for a large art hall and a shop with our own custom-designed products. The site also boasts our Artbox, an enormous concert, event and studio locale of 13,000 square feet with accompanying artists’ space. There are also activity spaces for children and youngsters, conference rooms of varying sizes and two restaurants – both with outdoor serving and magnificent sea views.
