SAN FRANCISCO, CA.-
The fifth annual edition of FOG Design+Art
will take place January 1114, 2018 at Fort Mason Center, with a Preview Gala on Wednesday, January 10 to benefit the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA). The fair brings together 45 leading international design and visual art galleries for an intimate, highly curated selection of exhibitions that celebrate San Franciscos long history as a hub for design, art, experimentation, and innovation. The fair will include a robust calendar of programs, including conversations between art and design luminaries and leaders in the field of arts and culture.
The fairs 45 participants were selected from more than 95 proposals. In addition to welcoming back many galleries to the fair for their fifth year, including Anthony Meier Fine Arts, Berggruen Gallery, Crown Point Press, Fraenkel Gallery, Friedman Benda, and Jessica Silverman Gallery, FOG Design+Art will feature a number of galleries participating for the first time this year, including Galerie Chantal Crousel, Galerie Chastel Maréchal, Luhring Augustine, Nicholas Kilner, Paul Kasmin, Sadie Coles, and Stuart Shave/Modern Art. The fair will feature an international roster of galleries from Chicago, London, Los Angeles, Mexico City, New York, and Paris, among others.
We are thrilled with the caliber of galleries participating this year, said steering committee member Susan Swig. Now in our fifth year, its incredible to look back and see how much the fair has grown. We were overwhelmed by the quality of this years proposals, and the thoughtful approach that these galleries took in thinking about an exhibition that responds both to the nature of this location and to the cross section of art and design that we are celebrating.
FOG has become a focal point for the design and arts communities on the West Coast, and celebrates the pioneering spirit and community-minded nature of the Bay Area. FOGs mission is to create a platform for the public, curators, collectors, and art world leaders to experience remarkable works of design and visual art by bringing together the pre-eminent dealers of 20th century and contemporary work.
Building on FOGs longstanding commitment to cultural institutions, the Preview Gala, Innovators Luncheon, and ArtBites support SFMOMAs exhibitions and education programs, as well as the FOG Forum, which specifically raises funds for the museums Architecture and Design department. FOG represents a key moment in which the local and global community congregates to engage in critical dialogue, artistic exchanges, and a shared passion for creative pursuits. This years fair is dedicated to the late Cathy Topham, a founding member of the FOG Steering Committee and longstanding SFMOMA supporter.
