The 12th edition of Market will take place at Färgfabriken, Stockholm, March 24-26. With the leading galleries from Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Iceland participating. Market will showcase an exclusive selection of the most interesting art on the Nordic art scene, once again focusing on carefully curated solo or duo projects.
Market Art Fair is the leading Nordic fair for contemporary art and has become an important meeting place for collectors and art professionals. It was founded by a group of gallerists in 2006 and represents the leading galleries from Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Iceland and Finland.

The board of Market Art Fair each year selects 30 galleries from Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark and Iceland, which then choose 1-2 artists they represent that will exhibit as part of Market Art Fair. Sweden’s most prominent female gallerist Marina Schiptjenko is part of the board.

For the 2017 edition Market will launch a new section which is exclusively dedicated to Nordic artists. This highlighted section Market Feature will present a selection of artists and their galleries, curated by Index – The Swedish Contemporary Art Foundation.
