PopUp Paris

Paris has always held a special place in the heart of Galleri GKM.
Without knowing a word of French, our father Siwert Bergström took the train to Paris in early spring 1976. Driven by his persistency and curiosity he wanted to get to know the Parisian art world. The artist Bengt Lindström had arranged for Siwert to meet with Corneille in a sidewalk café by the Rue de Clignancourt. This was the beginning of a long collaboration and friendship which led to several other acquaintances with artists who, like Corneille, came to form the core of Galleri GKM and the starting point for its development from a local to an international gallery.
