Now in its seventh year, Seattle Art Fair is back to showcase all the incredible art the PNW has to offer right next to works from across the globe. Over the weekend-long event, thousands of visitors can stroll through the cavernous Lumen Field Event Center and stick their noses into booths of galleries from near and far. Familiar faces like Greg Kucera Gallery and Roq La Rue Gallery will present alongside galleries like New York’s Harman Projects and Isfahan, Iran’s Fotowat Gallery. The art fair always provides a unique opportunity to make visual, IRL connections across the art world in a way that simply looking at a screen does not.
In addition to booths, Seattle Art Fair will host several site-specific installations. The Vestibule Gallery in Ballard is presenting Eunsun Choi’s piece “Touch Grass,” a meditation on the meme “touch grass” that uses sensors and fake grass made of steel wires to entice viewers to interact with this artificial nature. ICA San Francisco and Sikkema Jenkins & Co. are hosting Jeffrey Gibson’s (Mississippi Choctaw-Cherokee) “THE MANY WORLDS,” a massive, geometric mobile that uses landscape images from one of his previous immersive installations to approximate a model of our solar system.
