Facebook group for exhibitors
There is a Facebook group for our exhibitors.
We regularly publish information relevant to the art fair and your participation in the group, so we recommend you join in.
Please add all the members of your team and artists who will be involved in your exhibit at Supermarket. We will approve your request.
Find the Facebook group ‘Supermarket 2023 Participants’ HERE.5
Installation and floorplan ^
All booths have access to electric outlets. There are extension cables and multiple sockets to borrow, otherwise you can purchase items in Claes Ohlson hardware stores around the city centre.
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.
- 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 10 May?
Yes. You have to be finished with setting up your booth by 11.00 on Wednesday 10 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 Forum. You will receive details on the Forum programme via Exhibitors’ newsletter.
- 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.
- What kind of AC power plugs and sockets are used in Sweden?
CEE 7 standard https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CEE_7_standard_AC_plugs_and_sockets – a voltage of 230 V and a frequency of 50 Hz.
- Where can exhibitors print and copy?
See Where to buy… section below.
If you want to order vinyl letters we recommend Malena Zsiga firstname.lastname@example.org who can also help you to mount the text.
Please note that you cannot start to de-install your booth before 18.00 on Sunday 14 May. You can work in the venue 18.00–21.00. The de-installation continues on Monday 15 May 11.00–18.00.

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.

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: firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
