Supermarket Art Fair, Stockholm
As part of their endeavours to provide creative platforms MART presents the work of five leading Irish contemporary artists at Supermarket Art Fair, Stockholm. The show forms part of an on-going programme of exhibitions curated by MART to promote Irish art in international contemporary art markets in Europe and the US.
Since 2007 MART has sought to create opportunities by conceiving creative platforms to support artists from all stages of their careers to test new ground. Projects have included exhibitions across Ireland, the U.K, Central Eastern Europe, North America and Japan. In 2013 MART began a project to renovate the fire station in Rathmines, Dublin and now supports over 100 members in 7 studio buildings, and includes a Gallery, Project Space and International residency.
SUPERMARKET is an international artist-run art fair for artist-run galleries and other artists’ initiative. It has featured exhibitors from more than 50 countries, all part of a growing international trend of artist-run galleries, project spaces, artist collectives and other artists’ initiatives.
