With great continued interest in the Nordic contemporary art, Market Art Fair consolidates its position as the Nordic region’s leading fair for contemporary art. This year’s edition will take place at Liljevalchs, April 24 - 26, 2020. In late 2019 we announced the participating galleries. Now, we are thrilled to share the list of artists that will be presented at the fair.
The selection of the participating galleries for Market Art Fair 2020 is made by an independent selection committee consisting of Marianne Torp (Chief Curator SMK, Denmark), Jeanette Steinsland (Director Gallery Steinsland Berliner, Stockholm), Magnus af Petersens (Independent Curator, Stockholm), Pilvi Kalhama (Director EMMA Museum, Esboo), Eivind Furnesvik (Director STANDARD (OSLO), Oslo) and chairman Lars Nittve (Museum director emeritus, Sweden).
This year the Selection Committee chose to only admit 33 galleries, which is a decrease from the previous year. This provides larger booths for exhibitors, allowing for more comprehensive artistic presentations, ensuring a higher quality as well as an even better visitor experience.
Several galleries will be exhibiting at Market Art Fair for the first time; Berg Gallery (Stockholm), Dorothee Nilsson Gallery (Berlin), Galleri Arnstedt (Båstad), Golsa (Oslo) and OSL Contemporary (Oslo), participating at the fair after an absence of several years.
Additionally, there is a record-breaking number of Norwegian galleries participating at this year's fair, including Galleri Haaken, Galleri Riis, Gerhardsen Gerner, Golsa, OSL Contemporary, and STANDARD (OLSO).
"Several renowned artists can be found in this year's edition of Market Art Fair, in combination with an up and coming generation of artists, new to the fair. Market Art Fair will provide an extensive, even stellar overview of the Nordic art scene" - says Saskia Neuman, Director Market Art Fair.
Market Art Fair will also offer an expanded program of artist talks, screenings and collaborations with cultural partners throughout Stockholm. A detailed program will be published online shortly.
Market Art Fairs press lunch will take place on April 23rd, 11 am at Liljevalchs.
