SUPERMARKET Art Fair, Kulturhuset, Stockholm, 14th-16th February 2014

PAPER will be showing some of my new series of drawings, 'Studies of a neighbourhood', 2014, at SUPERMARKET Art Fair, alongside the work of Par Stromberg, Hayley Lock, Richard Meaghan, David Hancock, Andrea Cotton and Naomi Lethbridge. 

SUPERMARKET returns to Kulturhuset (the House of Culture) in Stockholm with its ninth Fair.  It is a platform for the newest, most vital and innovative international art.  With over 80 exhibitors from 30 countries worldwide it is the single largest international event in Scandinavia.  Despite its name SUPERMARKET is not a supermarket for art.  Instead the content is in focus and the theme for the year will be Difference(s).
