SUPERMARKET 2019 Stockholm Independent Art Fair 4–7 April 2019 Sickla Front, Uddvägen 7, Sickla
Gallery Huuto at Supermarket 2019: The Great Wheel of Fortune keeps on turning – come in, spin and win an exhibition opportunity, fame and glory, masterpieces by Huuto artists as well as by anonymous geniuses, lost and found art objects, words of wisdom or a shiny badge. When the game is art, everybody wins! Of the question of the taboos of today, we’d like to point at a defining one: Ownership – the one the art world also has trouble dealing with. Our booth will be a carnival space, dominated by a large Wheel of Fortune. Lotteries are arranged, where real as well as fictional pieces of art can be won, pointing critically at the conventions of ownership, authority and originality.
