Where would you chose start running an art gallery? In New York, Paris or Tokyo? Or in the town of Umeå in northern Sweden? GSA Gallery started in Umeå. This is the nice town where the gallery owner Stefan Andersson lives. To start running the gallery in Umeå has had several advantages, compared to if it had started in a larger city.
Stefan Andersson is interviewed in the first episode of Gentleman Lars. The episode covers the start and growth of the gallery and how it comes that this gallery represents several world famous artists.
