United by their common interest in promoting a wide variety of contemporary art, they have produced more than 180 exhibitions since they opened. Candyland serves as a local art platform with heterogeneous audiences and is active in international networks with a focus on developing the artist-run sector.

Candyland is a non-profit art space run by ten people who take turns in inviting artists to exhibit. Candyland is located in Södermalm, the south east part of Stockholm, where most of the artists' initiatives in Stockholm are located. Candyland was founded in February 2004. So far, Candyland has arranged more than a hundred exhibitions accompanied by gigs, performances, workshops, screenings etc over a period of seven years. This has resulted in a wide variety of

different projects, often experimental and informal in their presentation, and a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

Alongside making exhibitions with invited artists Candyland has developed into an artist group.
