Highlights of the 7th Edition

The 7th edition of the fair will feature the established galleries coming from all over the world, and displaying works by some of the most intriguing contemporary and modern artists. The fair will showcase not just the leading trends, but will also be a platform for showing historically important works. Art Market San Francisco is an ideal platform for the dialog between modern and contemporary artworks and projects, facilitating the exploration, discovery, and acquisition of artworks.

The Skateroom will display the works by Ai Weiwei and Shepard Fairey titled Study of Perspective – The White House and No Future, while the Arcadia Contemporary Gallery will showcase the atmospheric and alluring works by Johannes Wessmark, Annie Murphy Robinson, Brad Kunkle, and Mary Henderson. Among the selected works, Forum Gallery will have a gem from the early 20th century – Alexander Archipenko’s Leaning Figure, in addition to works by Davis Cone, Gregory Gillespie, and Xenia Hausner. The pop artist Tom Wesselmann’s Nude from 1969 can be seen at Eckert Fine Art Gallery, together with pop explorations of Hunt Slonem and Robert Cottingham. Finally, the cornucopia is a theme of Natalia Edenmont’s art at Nancy Hoffman Gallery, along with a more dramatic works by Viola Frey and Hung Liu.
