Seattle Art Fair announces dealer committee and sponsors; Laura Fried returns as Artistic Director
The 2016 Seattle Art Fair featured 84 local, national, and international exhibitors, attracting over 18,000 visitors.

SEATTLE, WA.- The Seattle Art Fair, presented by AIG, announced Lidia Andich (Gagosian Gallery), Robert Goff (David Zwirner), James Harris (James Harris Gallery), William Hathaway (Night Gallery), Greg Kucera (Greg Kucera Gallery), and Elizabeth Sullivan (Pace Gallery) as the dealer committee for the latest edition of the acclaimed fair, and the return of AIG as presenting partner and Delta Air Lines and Windermere Real Estate as associate-level sponsors. The Seattle Art Fair returns to its home at CenturyLink Field Event Center’s WaMu Theater this August 3 - 6. In only its third year, the fair has already established itself as a one-of-a-kind destination for the best in modern and contemporary art, and a showcase for the vibrant arts community of the Pacific Northwest.

As presenting partner of the Seattle Art Fair and the fair’s VIP After Party, AIG will offer a collector-focused educational session on preserving and protecting new art acquisitions. Delta will present the fair’s café and lounge, and Windermere the fair’s VIP lounge.

Laura Fried will also return to serve as Artistic Director for her second year, leading development of the fair’s curatorial vision and innovative programming, including on-site and off-site installations, talks, performances, and presentations at the fair. Examples of last year’s wide-ranging projects and talks include: a discussion between Carrie Brownstein and Kyle MacLachlan on cultural investment in the Pacific Northwest; a discussion between Kim Gordon and Branden W. Joseph spanning art, music, and language; walking tour performances conceived by Glenn Kaino and led by Speed Levitch; Adam McEwen’s monolithic replicas of IBM supercomputers; collaborative performances by Brendan Fowler; and much more.

“The third year of any fair is a benchmark, and we’re thrilled to enter ours with an incredible level of interest from collectors and groups all over the country, and the world,” says Max Fishko, Director of the Seattle Art Fair. “Our sponsors are returning, we’re welcoming another top-notch dealer committee that will help us activate the broader art world, and are expecting tremendous turnout.”

The 2016 Seattle Art Fair featured 84 local, national, and international exhibitors, attracting over 18,000 visitors. Previous cultural partners include the Seattle Art Museum, the Seattle Art Fair’s 2016 Beneficiary Partner, Henry Art Gallery, Seattle Symphony, and the Portland Art Museum.
