Magasin III was founded in 1987 to fill a gap. It is private institution with a mission to make the best of contemporary art available to a broad public. Through ambitious presentations of internationally established artists Magasin III has become one of the most important institutions in Sweden for contemporary art.

That is why we have supported the arts since our inception, providing exhibiting artists with the opportunity to produce new works that influence, engage, and question. Then, as now, we invite you to experience the commitment, ambition and creativity of internationally established artists from around the world. Our exhibitions are at the core of our ever-growing collection of works by artists relevant to our time. Magasin III has become one of the leading institutions of contemporary art in Europe. For over 30 years we have also lent works from our collection to museums around the world. Located since the beginning in a former warehouse in Frihamnen (the former Free Port of Stockholm).
