Candyland is a nonprofit art space that is run by ten people who take turns inviting artists to exhibit at the space. It is located in Södermalm, part of southeast Stockholm, where most artist initiatives in the city are located.
Founded in February 2004, Candyland has, to date, arranged more than 100 exhibitions accompanied by gigs, performances, workshops, screenings, and more. These efforts have resulted in a wide variety of different projects, often experimental and informal in their presentation, with a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
Alongside organizing exhibitions with invited artists, Candyland works with projects outside of the exhibition space, and has also developed into an artist group.
