Grafikens Hus is a museum and meeting place specialising in graphic arts. During Affordable Art Fair Stockholm, Grafikens Hus is offering a playful workshop where you can learn how to create a linoleum print and take your creation away with you - a simple and fun method to produce beautiful graphic prints!

This year they will present the exhibition 'Print & Play; focus Bergen' at Affordable Art Fair Stockholm. Focus for the exhibition will be Norwegian contemporary art made with different printing techniques. Almost all works shown by Marte Aas, Cato Løland, Vilde Salhus Røed, Hedvig S. Thorkildsen and Victoria Browne are made in the graphic workshop called Trykkeriet.

ART TALKS

Affordable Art Fair Stockholm not only brings you beautiful art from local and international galleries, but also hosts a series of creative and inspirational lectures. Nationalmuseum will expose how the world's best fake artworks have been revealed, provide insight into how art is valued, plus host a fun talk on how to take a good selfie. Street art connoisseurs Malcolm Jacobson, Jacob Kimvall and Tobias Barenthin Lindblad will talk about graffiti culture in Sweden and give an exclusive preview of the upcoming exhibition Magic City - The Art of the Street, which will open later this fall.

All lectures are held in the 'TALKS' area, which is located in the brick corridor.
