SUPERMARKET - Stockholm Independent Art Fair 2019
The theme of SUPERMARKET 2019 is ‘Temporary Moratorium: All Allowed?’. It ponders the normative behaviour in contemporary art and its relation to the world outside: what standardised norms has art acquired today, what taboos does it deal with, what are the ever changing, unwritten and market-driven rules that contemporary art either crosses – or dares not, and what influence can this self-contained bubble really have on wider audience?
SUPERMARKET 2019 introduces a new programme event for art professionals, the SUPERMARKET FORUM. SUPERMARKET FORUM is a one-day networking event for exhibitors, professional networking participants and invited guests – curators, gallerists, art managers, institutions and art organisers from the contemporary Swedish art sector. The programme allows the exhibitors to meet representatives of Swedish art scene, present their projects in depth and talk to other participants and guests within a simple framework focused on establishing new connections. SUPERMARKET Forum will take place on 4 April.
SUPERMARKET 2019 continues to widen its public programme TALKS & PERFORMANCE and brings in international guests to contribute to panel discussions, presentations and performance art during the whole art fair.
For individual professionals from the arts sector remains the Professional Networking Participants programme (PNP) with its focus on exchange of knowledge and experience from within the artist-run art scene.
