24–26 March 2017

Index is collaborating with Market Art Fair on a new exhibition section for Market 2017, taking place 24-26 March at Färgfabriken in Stockholm. The new section Market Feature highlights artists from the Nordic countries that have contributed significantly to the discussion of contemporary art, but are not represented by galleries already participating at Market. The section aims to create stronger connections between the Nordic scene, which has always been the focus of Market Art Fair, and international debates. Market Art Fair is the leading Nordic fair for contemporary art and has become an important meeting place for art professionals and Stockholm-based art professionals.

The artists and and galleries participating in Market Feature 2017 are:

Nina Beier – Croy Nielsen, Vienna
John Skoog – Johan Berggren, Malmö
Runo Lagomarsino – Nils Stærk, Kopenhagen
Marie Karlberg – Reena Spaulings, New York

Market is accompanied by a public program of talks and events. The program on Friday, 24 March, is dedicated to Market Feature and the participating artists.
