Today was the opening of the Market Art Fair at Liljevalchs in Stockholm. Established in 2006 by a group of Gallerists, this Fair showcases Contemporary Art by Galleries from the Nordic region of Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Iceland and Finland. Having previously attended very large Art Fairs which can be overwhelming, I found the Market Art Fair to be a rather intimate affair, The location in Liljevalchs provided a cozy atmosphere, and I was able to walk around and see everything and chat with the galleries about the artwork and artists, most of them very approachable and happy to discuss the pieces on display. There seemed to be a mix of young talent as well as the well established ones. Denise Grunstein, whom I had just seen last month in an exhibition organised by the National Museum was represented by Galleri Charlotte Lund, Prints by Vivian Maier by Danish Galleri Tom Christoffersen, Maria Friberg by Galleri Andersson Sandström and Olafur Eliasson at the Icelandic Galleri i8. My favourite would have to be the bronze sculpture by Austrian Erwin Wurm. I also liked the Icelandic Hverfisgalleri with three very different Icelandic artists represented. Stockholm Art Week takes place between the 14 -19th of April with events taking place all over the city in Galleries and Museums.
