Now in its seventh year, FOG Design+Art, San Francisco’s premier contemporary design fair, has clearly hit its stride with a mix of notable galleries and standout works. Featuring 48 exhibitors from around the world, this year’s participants included six new galleries, including Gallery FUMI (London), Mercado Moderno (Rio de Janeiro), Lehmann Maupin (New York), and Tina Kim Gallery (New York). Returning galleries and dealers include Hostler Burrows and R & Company out of New York, Sarah Myerscough Gallery of London, Kurimanzutto of Mexico City, along with Gagosian, Haines Gallery, and Lebreton from San Francisco.
Held at Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture, the annual event, which is open to the public through January 19, benefits SFMOMA’s exhibitions and education programs. Programming, organized by FOG steering committee member Susan Swig, includes curated discussions, conversations, and panels with an array of designers, curators, artists, and forward-thinkers with a focus on art, culture and technology.
