Seattle Art Fair shares exhibitor highlights, along with specific times of performances in its Projects and Talks program for its second edition.
“The second edition of the Seattle Art Fair will see some of the most important artists in the world, represented by the most highly regarded galleries working today,” said Max Fishko, Seattle Art Fair director and managing partner of Art Market Productions. “We are excited to mount an exhibition as unique, diverse, and beautiful as the city itself.”
The Seattle Art Fair has established itself as a boutique fair where collectors can acquire some of the best art in the world in an intimate setting, and is an essential destination on the art world calendar. The 2016 fair includes some of the most prestigious galleries worldwide, from such cities as Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Portland, Seattle, San Francisco, Paris, Cologne, Seoul, Buenos Aires, Tokyo, and beyond.
The Seattle Art Fair Projects debuts a new series of special projects, performances, and installations to engage the fair’s public spaces, organized by Artistic Director Laura Fried. On-site at the fair, an ambitious lineup of solo projects by an intergenerational group of emerging and established artists will be on view at the CenturyLink Field Event Center during fair hours. Off-site in adjacent neighborhoods, site-responsive projects in Pioneer Square and the International District/Chinatown will celebrate the many facets of performance, highlighting interdisciplinary work and a collaborative spirit.
Seattle Art Fair Talks presents a program of two-person dialogues by an array of artists and leaders in creative fields with deep connections to the West Coast and the Pacific Northwest. The Talks will take place throughout the run of the fair, in the Seattle Art Fair Theater within CenturyLink Field Event Center. Focusing on curiosity and the ways a distinct sense of place can create a powerful cultural context.
