An announcement came round today of a new art fair in San Francisco that will be held from May 19-22. The organizers are looking for galleries. With all the speculation around new fairs going into LA, California is edging out virtual space for the most new art fairs:
artMRKT San Francisco will be a premiere International Art Fair devoted to the presentation of important artwork from the 20th and 21st centuries with a focus on San Francisco galleries and artists.
In its inaugural year, the show will combine a selection of leading galleries with a thoughtful program of art events and exhibitions at the fair venue and throughout the city. Showcasing new artists alongside historical material, artMRKT will create an ideal context for the discovery, discussion and placement of artwork.
The show will be held in the Concourse Exhibition Center in downtown San Francisco, a 57,000 Square Foot repurposed train station that provides a centrally located stage for our event. For venue information and a floor plan please visit www.art-mrkt.com.
