Sweetwater is a contemporary art gallery based in Berlin, Germany, founded in 2018. The gallery works with a wide range of artists based both in Germany and abroad, with a focus on conceptual practices across media. In addition to a regular exhibition program in the gallery, Sweetwater also frequently participates in offsite projects and art fairs. The gallery currently represents seven artists: Christopher Aque, Sofia Defino Leiby, Luzie Meyer, Kayode Ojo, Jesse Stecklow, Hanna Stiegeler, and Constantin Thun. Sweetwater is a member of the International Galleries Alliance.
The gallery began operations on the third floor at Kottbusser Damm 7, a former apartment building converted to offices in the Kreuzberg neighborhood of Berlin. Between September 2018 and January 2021, Sweetwater presented solo exhibitions by Kayode Ojo, Christopher Aque, Jesse Stecklow, Gaby Sahhar, Luzie Meyer, Constantin Thun, and D’Ette Nogle at the space, as well as a number of group exhibitions. In April 2021, the gallery moved to its present street-level location at Leipziger Straße 56-58, part of the Komplex Leipziger Straße. At the current location, in addition to multiple group exhibitions, Sweetwater has hosted solo exhibitions by Kayode Ojo, Christopher Aque, Sofia Defino Leiby, Luzie Meyer, HC, and Megan Plunkett.
