About the Market Art Fair

Market Art Fair is the leading contemporary art fair in the Nordic region. The fair was initiated in 2006 by galleries representing the Nordic countries. It later became a trusted meeting and marketplace in the heart of the Nordic art industry.

During the fair, selected galleries showcase an exclusive selection of the most exciting artists on the Nordic scene, focusing on solo projects and carefully curated presentations. They connect international collectors, institutions, art professionals, the press, and guests annually.

The fair also features an ambitious program, Market Talks, collateral events, and projects throughout Stockholm. These include an extensive VIP Programme for international collectors and professionals.
