SUPERMARKET 2018 – Stockholm’s Independent Art Fair, who have partnered with Artlyst again this year have announced the full list of exhibiting artist-run galleries selected to participate this year. SUPERMARKET 2018 shows. It includes 53 artist-run initiatives from 41 cities around the world during 12–15 April 2018. In total more than 150 artists exhibit. Artist-run spaces from Europe and Scandinavia will be represented alongside initiatives from Georgia, Iran, Syria, South Africa, Canada, and the USA.
For the first time the art fair hosts exhibitors from Slovakia, HotDock Project Space and Photoport, and from Luxembourg, represented by the Musel Link association. SUPERMARKET 2018 is proud to showcase three Russian initiatives this year – Elektrozavod from Moscow, Dom Gruzchika from Perm, and Gallery ч9 from Murmansk, the very northwest of the Russian Federation. Amongst other first-time exhibitors are the Artist-Run Alliance from Israel, Durden and Ray from Los Angeles, Storm and Drunk from Madrid, Ekkisens Art Space from Iceland, SAW gallery from Canada, and many more.
The overarching theme of SUPERMARKET 2018 is ‘Legacy: Who Will Survive And What Will be Left of Them?’. It discusses the heritage of art and the fleeting nature of human legacy, the issues of sustainability of the artist-run art scene, or the impact that artists have as individuals.
As every year, SUPERMARKET 2018 includes the public programme TALKS & PERFORMANCE, with panel discussions, presentations and performance art. The Professional Networking Participants programme (PNP) also continues with its focus on exchange of knowledge and experience from within the artist-run art scene.
The goal of Supermarket – Stockholm Independent Art Fair is to provide a showcase of artists’ initiatives from all over the world and to create opportunities for new networks on Swedish and international art scene. It is an art fair that strives to offer the visitor an experience rather than focusing on sales. Artist-run galleries that regularly display public exhibitions in their own spaces, and other artists’ initiatives that arrange exhibitions and events with invited artists can apply to exhibit at Supermarket.
