About the Gallery

Easily accessible by train or by car, Galleri Tapper-Popermajer is located very close to major cities in the booming Öresund region. On Artsy we are open 24/7, but our physical space you can visit only by appointment. Welcome to our cosy old train station right in the middle of Skåne. 

History of Galleri Tapper-Popermajer

Galleri Tapper-Popermajer was founded already 23 years ago in Malmö, the third largest city in Sweden. During the early years, a bold and unique exhibition program featuring Swedish as well as international contemporary artists established the gallery as a respected venue. For a number of years the gallery was located close to the concert hall and opera house in Malmö but then moved to a more spacious exhibition space even closer to the city centre. With 400 m2 exhibition area, the Tapper-Popermajer gallery was then one of the largest in the region.

Then, in 2007, the gallery moved from the big city to the old trainstation in Teckomatorp. A large building with loads of history and charm, located right in the center of the Swedish-Danish Öresundsregionen. A project named Kulturzon was soon initiated with funds from the EU and the local municipality. The Kulturzon project promoted the village of Teckomatorp as a unique destination for cultural activities and art. Over recent years, the old train station and the Kulturzon have successively developed into a multifacetted meeting place for various cultural activities. Please explore www.kulturzon.se to see what else our old train station has to offer. 

In 2019, Galleri Tapper-Popermajer opened up a second exhibition space for a couple of years in Landskrona city centre. Since 2021 however, you find the gallery online (Artsy) and in our office / main gallery space in Teckomatorp. The business is centered around selected artists that we promote and represent on a permanent basis. We all the time have a number their works in storage on location in Teckomatorp.

The gallery is owned by Hans Tapper. For many years he dedicated himself to fine art and culture in parallel to a career in advanced medical research. However, ever since Hans acquired the old station building in 2006 all his passion goes to his gallery, the artists, and the gallery clients.
