Art collectors and self-appointed connoisseurs of the Bay Area will appreciate the Art Market San Francisco’s reemergence after a two-year hiatus. Returning to Fort Mason’s Festival Pavilion from April 21-24, the Bay Area’s longest running art fair celebrates its highly anticipated 10th edition with over 75 innovative galleries featured from across the globe.
Interactive and large-scale, attendees will discover thought-provoking art installations throughout the fair’s public space. Pt. 2 Gallery, a mural designed by Lena Gustafson and Avila Rose, will greet all upon entrance shortly followed by Marie Watt’s Skywalker/Skyscraper presented by the established Catharine Clark Gallery. The intricately hand-cut and sewn tapestry representing a modern-day African diaspora titled Blood for Forgiveness by Chris Martin will preside over the fair’s cafe courtesy of Hashimoto Contemporary. Additionally notable activations include Timothy Yarger Fine Art’s intimate presentation of Mads Christenen’s Campfire accompanied by Elain Buckholtz’s Seldom Scene constructed with Electric Works. These stunning artworks are just a few standout examples among the plethora of remarkable artists represented at the Art Market of San Francisco this spring.
The annual fair will reintroduce their exciting public programming of panels and various discussions hosted by the Art Market’s cultural partners. From The New Art Collection: NFTs and Digital Art hosted by ArtTable to Creativity Explore’s panel FashionABLE on fashion and art’s intersectionality, these engaging lectures will meaningfully connect attendees with today’s educational leaders of the artworld.
