12 months ago

The Seattle Art Fair 2018 will take place on the first week end of August, constituting once more a point of reference for all the art community of the Pacific Northwest. Founded in 2015 and based in Seattle, the fair will host more than 100 galleries, bringing together national and international collectors, galleries, museums and institutions.
The upcoming edition marks the first year that Nato Thompson will serve as the fair’s artistic director. In a statement, Max Fishko, the fair’s director, said, “This year cements the fair as a key event in the international art world calendar, with a robust exhibitor list that brings together blue-chip galleries, emerging international players, and Seattle’s local institutions. We’re excited to offer a platform for the best contemporary art, as well as an energized program of events curated by Nato Thompson.”
Taking place from 2nd to 5th of August, it will be enriched by an intensive program of collateral activities, projects and talks. Initiatives will involve live performances, such as the one by artists Charlene Vickers and Maria Hupfield, solo exhibitions, as for example “Here Come the Boren Sisters” by Wayne White, installations, demonstrations and more.
