Galerie Mikael Andersen was established in Copenhagen in 1989. Since then the gallery has had a strong focus on contemporary painting and sculpture, including both Danish and international artists. 

Galerie Mikael Andersen has from the outset aimed to internationalise the Danish art scene through exhibitions at its Bredgade locale, where the gallery has been situated since the beginning. Additionally, the gallery has curated exhibitions at other institutions such as Fairy Tales Forever (2005) at Aros – Aarhus Art Museum, Display (1997) and JuxtaPosition (1993), both at Charlottenborg, Copenhagen. Through these exhibitions Mikael Andersen came to work with a number of German artists such as Martin Kippenberger, Isa Genzken, Albert Oehlen, Cosima von Bonin and, most notably, Günther Förg. 

The ongoing, dynamic dialogue between Galerie Mikael Andersen and the German art scene was cemented between 2007 and 2014 when the gallery expanded to include an exhibition space in Berlin. Many young Berlin based artists such as Tom Anholt, Lucy Teasdale and Fritz Bornstück were included in the gallery’s programme, further extending its international profile. The gallery also represent the Estate of South African avant-garde painter Ernest Mancoba (1904-2002) and Danish sculptor Sonja Ferlov Mancoba (1911-1984).

In 2014 the exhibition "Günther Förg - Ubuntu" marked the gallery’s 25th anniversary.
