Market Talks: Artists First presents a series of talks in which artists across the Nordic art scene share their views and thoughts on art and their artistic practices. In dialogue with curators and art historians, these conversations are an opportunity to learn more about the artists that will be presented at Market Art Fair in September.

The programme includes artists Ragna Bley (SE), A K Dolven (NO), Nicolai Howalt (DK), Anna Retulainen (FI) and Jim Thorell (SE), in conversations with Joa Ljungberg (Curator of Exhibitions at Moderna Museet Malmö), Anne Hilde Neset (Director at Kunstnernes Hus), Helene Nyborg Bay (Artistic Director at Nikolaj Kunsthal), Timo Valjakka (Art critic, writer and editor) and Jenny Danielsson (Freelance writer and host of The Artword Podcast).
