Applications for SUPERMARKET 2013
Stockholm Sun, 08/12/2012 - 02:54
This is an invitation addressed to artist-run spaces and initiatives but we
send it to all our international network. If this message is not of interest
to you please send it on to artist-run projects that you would like to
Applications for SUPERMARKET 2013 can be made online
SUPERMARKET 2013 – Stockholm Independent Art Fair dates 15–17
We welcome applications to participate in next year’s international
artist-run art fair SUPERMARKET, which will take place on two floors of
Kulturhuset in Stockholm, Sweden. Since last year we have chosen to bring
forward the application period to increase the possibility for our
participants to seek funding.
The goal of SUPERMARKET is to provide a showcase for artists' initiatives
from all over the world and to create opportunities for new networks in the
Swedish and international art scenes. It is also an art fair that strives to
offer the visitor an experience, rather than focusing on sales.
Artist-run galleries regularly staging public exhibitions in their own
exhibition spaces and other artists' initiatives that arrange exhibitions and
events with invited artists can apply to exhibit at SUPERMARKET 2013.
Individual artists or artists' groups founded only for applying to
SUPERMARKET will not be accepted.
The theme of the seminars SUPERMARKET TALKS will be Happiness. We do not
intend to curate the fair on this theme but you can bear it in mind. We are
not looking for exhibition ideas illustrating the theme of Happiness but if
you already know examples of art connected to or problematising Happiness,
Success etc we are interested to hear about it in your application! Also
remember that we and the audience expect the exhibitors to show art and not
only documentation or papers.
Happiness will also be the theme of the annual magazine which is combined
with the fair catalogue. All applicants are welcome to suggest works relating
to the theme for inclusion in the publication. Send us low-res images before
the end of October and the art editor will contact the ones who we want to
include in the magazine.
We will continue to arrange the performance art programme RED SPOT and the
network meetings programme SUPERMARKET MEETINGS. If you are interested in
taking part please let us know.
The application is made on-line. You create an account and
register on our website. Your account will be used for submitting material if
you are selected to participate.
