INSTALLATIONS

British MotorGroup x Romina Moradi

We’re super excited that British MotorGroup, our main partner, will be displaying their hottest new car on the street; the Jaguar E-Pace. And it’s not just any Jaguar E-Pace on display, it will be none other than the winning design from the ‘Design your own Jaguar’ competition that we hosted this summer! With over 100 entries ranging from fine art photography to traditional oils anyone could enter the competition to bring their design to life, printed and applied to the car.

Together with representatives from Jaguar, Affordable Art Fair and Barnebys, we are delighted to announce that the winner is Romina Moradi, with her creative concept ‘Just Breasts’! Just Breasts is exactly what it sounds like - images of breasts which Moradi has designed and printed using water-based paint and fine art paper. Talking of her creative inspiration, Moradi says “Breasts are naked, powerful but also just breasts. There’s a choice in everything you do, and mine’s to leave a mark, which I’m hoping to inspire other to do as well”. On site, you will be able to create and take home your own ‘Just Breast’ print, so be sure to not miss this opportunity!

Okuda, 3ttman & Campo Viejo

Together with our partner, Camo Viejo wines, we are flying in world renowned street artists Okuda & 3ttman! Previously, the two artists have done murals and house facades all over the world. At the fair they will create an on-site art installation live during the Art After Work event (Thursday 11 October, 5 – 10pm) which will feature popping colours, geometric shapes and the playfulness that their work is famed for.

Book your tickets to Art After Work below.


 

NON-VIOLENCE ART PROJECTNon-Violence Art Project

Our charity partner this year is the Non-Violence Art Project! The Non-Violence Art Project has collaborated with several well-known artists to produce a series of collectable, limited edition knotted gun sculptures, which will be available for sale at the fair. Previously designed by musician Paul McCartney, artist Yoko Ono and Jonny Johansson, creative director at the fashion brand Acne, next in line is the Swedish artist and rapper Petter!

His sculpture will be showcased at the fair for the first time where you’ll be able to buy a signed and numbered artwork. A percentage of the proceeds from sales will go towards funding the Non-Violence Project Foundation, which actively works against violence and educates children of all ages to solve conflict peacefully.

 

RECENT GRADUATES

This year we are welcoming a total of 6 recent graduate artists from the art schools around Sweden. Our curators, Ellen K Gedda and Robin Borg have travelled the length and breadth of our country to hand select the best artistic rising stars. In the exhibition you will find quirky sculptures, huge oil paintings and graphic prints. You absolutely don’t want to miss this exhibition, find it in the centre of the exhibition hall.

 

HIDDEN TALENTS

This year we are launching an exciting new platform project here in Stockholm, for the first time ever we are welcoming four ‘hidden talents’ to exhibit with us! The title hidden talents has been chosen as each of the four artists have an aspiration to practice art full time, but don’t do it for a living… yet. Our aim is to build a connection between aspiring full time artists, our visitors and galleries – who of course are always on the hunt for new creative talent! You’ll find them in the corridor next to the Absolut bar – so you can browse with a cocktail in hand.

 

ART MAKING ACTIVITES

Grafiska Sällskapet

Grafiska Sällskapet, the Swedish Printmakers Association, is one of our work shop partners this year! Founded 1910, they have hosted art installations, shows and biennials - constantly working to highlight the creative graphics industry, which they will now do at the fair. Visit their stand on the second floor where you can see a hundred year old printing press and get the chance to create your own graphic work to take home with you!

GraffitiSthlm

Awaken your inner street artist with GraffitiSthlm! Join a workshop where you can create a piece of street and graffiti art with guidance from renowned Stockholm artists Klive and Kaos. Using spray paint and other materials you will together create a mural featuring a myriad of expressions and styles.

Kids Space

This year our kids corner will be hosted by the book publishing company Opal. They have invited their children books illustrators to the fair who will help guide their band of mini-illustrators in inspiring activities such as painting with coffee, building your own robot and learning how to illustrate the Nordic phenomena of the northern lights.

You’ll find all activities, including the kids space, on the second floor of Nacka Strandsmässan which you access from the staircase in the corridor.
