FAQ

  • Will there be chairs in each exhibition booth?
    Yes, two chairs per stand are included for every exhibitor. These will be distributed to each of the booths by our volunteers. Extra chairs need to be pre-ordered (see below). You pay by card upon your arrival to the fair.

  • How do we order chairs and tables?
    You can order tables and chairs before 1 May. Send an email to our information coordinator Tania Brito at visitors@supermarketartfair.com. You pay by card upon your arrival to the fair. We provide 2 chairs for free, but you need to order any additional ones (extra chair is 35 SEK*). You will be able to pick up your order at the information desk during the installation days.
    Prices: White round or square café table Ø70 cm, H: 72 cm – 208 SEK*. Round bar table Ø60 cm, H: 110 cm – 208 SEK*. White plastic table, 60 x 122 cm –73 SEK*. (There is also a wider option, 76 x 122 cm, for the same price. Please note clearly if you want the wider option.)
    *25% VAT will be added to all prices.  

  • Can we order extra walls for our booth?
    The wall segments are 1 m wide and 2.5 m high. Some wall segments are ½ metre wide. A link to the floorplan will be provided here in March.
    Order extra walls by 1 May at andreas@supermarketartfair.com. The price is 240 SEK for 1 m, and 220 SEK for 0.5 m. 25% VAT will be added to all prices.  You pay by card upon your arrival to the fair.
  • Can we order extra spotlights?
    There will be general lighting but you can order exhibition led arm light spotlights that are attached to the top of the fair walls. You will get ca 3 spotlights per large/small booth. If you think you will need more they cost 75 SEK each to rent. Send an email to our information coordinator Tania Brito at visitors@supermarketartfair.com before 15 May+

Installation and floorplan    ^

All booths have access to electric outlets. There are extension cables and multiple sockets to borrow, and Claes Ohlson hardware store in the shopping mall.
There are some basic tools to borrow, but exhibitors are usually borrowing from each other. Any tools that Supermarket can provide are available at the Information desk.
Please communicate with the exhibitors on the other side of walls before you hammer!
See Where to buy… below for information on art and materials suppliers, print shops and hardware stores. 

FAQ

  • Is it possible to hang heavy artworks or monitors on the wall?
    The walls are made of masonite with filling, so drilling and plugging does not work for heavy pieces. The walls have a frame made of 5 cm solid wood. If you can fix a wooden screw close to the joints it will work. Hanging with wire from the top of the wall is another option. The third option: a nail hole where you put a small S-hook is stronger than only a screw or nail.
    The best way to hang a monitor if you can not fix it to the solid wooden frame is to cover the wall with chipboard. 

  • Can we paint the walls?
    If you want to paint the walls of the booth, use matte paint. If you use shiny paint, permanent marker or wallpaper that cannot be removed, you will be charged SEK 700 + VAT per 1 m section. If you want to use wallpaper, we suggest that you staple it instead of gluing it.
    If you want to paint your booth, the floor should be covered. Small stains should be removed with water and cloth. 

  • Are there any restrictions for drilling/sawing the walls?
    Small holes that can be filled are ok, but the exhibitors will have to reimburse walls with irreparable damages (SEK 700 + VAT per 1 m section). All holes in the walls should be filled before the exhibitors leave the fair!
    Please note that you cannot drill in the floor of the venue.

  • Is it necessary for exhibitors to finish the installation before the Press preview and Supermarket Forum on Wednesday 25 May?
    Yes. You have to be finished with setting up your booth by 11.00 on Wednesday 25 May. Why? From 11.00 on Wednesday we will hold the Press preview, and from 13.00 the Forum seminar day will take place. Due to limitations of space, only one person per gallery is invited to participate in the Forum.

  • Where can exhibitors keep packing material?
    Tie it together and clearly mark it with the gallery name/phone number. We will further specify the location of our storage room.

  • Where can exhibitors print and copy?
    See Where to buy… section below.
    If you want to order vinyl letters we recommend Malena Zsiga malena@zsiga.com who can also help you to mount the text.

Departure
Please note that you cannot start to de-install your booth before 18.00 on Sunday 29 May. You can work in the venue 18.00–21.00. The de-installation continues on Monday, and if necessary Tuesday.

Communications and parking    ^

The location is a large shopping centre SKHLM in Skärholmen Centrum, very close to the metro ’Skärholmen’ on the red metro line.

Metro
The closest metro (Tunnelbana) stop is Skärholmen (red metro line 13 direction Norsborg).
The closest exit is at the end of the platform. Entrance 5 to SKHLM shopping mall is straight ahead across the square.
Between 06.00 and 21.30 the trains leave every 10 minutes and take 23 minutes from Slussen, 16 minutes from Hornstull. The metro runs all night.

Airport to Skärholmen

  1. The airport bus to City Terminalen (Stockholm City) or Liljeholmen (a little shorter metro trip) is the cheapest option. It leaves every 15 minutes until 1.30 am (then there are a bit less frequent connections at 2.15 am, 3.15 am, 4.45 am) and the journey takes around 45 minutes. The cost is approximately €11.
    Have a look at www.flygbussarna.se for more information or to buy tickets. If you buy the tickets online, the prices are slightly lower.
    If you arrive at terminal 5 you have to walk quite a bit to reach the airport buses due to reconstruction work. Grab a baggage cart.
    You can also take the fast (but more expensive) Arlanda Express train (takes ca 20 min to Stockholm City): www.arlandaexpress.com
  2. The airport bus and fast train arrive in the City Terminal, connected to the Central station/T-centralen Metro station. If you take the airport bus to Liljeholmen it also stops outside the metro station.
  3. Buy a one-week metro ticket if you can (it is approx €55). Take the metro to Skärholmen (southbound on the red metro line 13 direction Norsborg).

Taxi from Arlanda Airport to the city centre

Car for up to 4 persons – SEK 495.
Large car, with seats for 5-7 persons – SEK 745. (~30-1h, depending on traffic) (www.taxistockholm.se, call: +46 8 15 00 00)
Airport taxi from Skavsta Airport is very expensive: a regular car for up to 4 persons is SEK 1375, and a large car, with seats for 5-7 persons is SEK 2065. (1h, depending on traffic situation) (www.taxistockholm.se, call: +46 8 15 00 00) Get the airport bus instead!

Parking
Skärholmen Centrum P-Hus
Skärholmsvägen
127 48 Skärholmen
Link
There is access to the fair directly from the car park
in the shopping mall. It offers free parking for up to 3 hours. Grab a ‘P-skiva’ at the entrance and put it in the front window set on your time of arrival.

In the suburbian area around Skärholmen the 5th rate (Taxa 5) is charged: 5 SEK per hour between 7.00 and 19.00, after that free of charge.

Parking in Stockholm
Roadside parking in the city is expensive. There are five different rates – ‘Taxa 1–5’. A blue sign on the street informs which rate applies. A good way is to download the parking app ‘Stockholm Parking’. Otherwise, there are pay machines. Roadside parking is usually free in the evenings and Sundays. The information on what hours you are supposed to pay a parking fee is stated on the parking signs.

Car parks (garages) offer ‘evening parking’ at a low price. The fee is usually SEK 50 from 18.00 to midnight. For this you pay SEK 50 in the pay machine and the parking time you get will automatically ‘jump’ to midnight.

Meetings    ^

Supermarket Meetings

Supermarket Meetings is a peer programme for exhibitors and participating artists to get together and talk. Meetings take place on Thursday and Friday in rooms away from excitement of the exhibition hall Each meeting consist of between five and eight participants and a moderator who introduces the topic and ensures that the meeting runs smoothly.
The aim is to exchange ideas, compare experiences and even build new connections and collaborations.
Meetings are not open to the public, they are therefore a ’safe space’ for frank and honest discussions amongst peers.
We are happy to answer any questions you might have! Email: meetings@supermarketartfair.com

Meetings Expanded
Meetings Expanded is a unique programme for artists and art professionals with the objectives to increase the exchange of knowledge and experience for artists and artist-run organisations worldwide. Meetings Expanded provide a daily schedule of networking activities that connect the participant with the local art scene, such as art institutions, galleries and cultural institutes, and with international exhibitors. The focus is to invite artists and art professionals who act as exhibition organisers and other influential members of artistic communities across the world to meet and exchange experiences and strategies, enabling the possibility of new projects and collaborations.

Forum

Supermarket Forum will take place on Wednesday 25 May, 13.00–18.00 and is followed by the Professional Preview.
