This week, the Seattle Art Fair, presented by A.I.G., returns to the Emerald City to host nearly 100 galleries alongside daily events, talks and special installations for its fifth edition taking place August 1st through August 4th, 2019.

"The programming at the Seattle Art Fair this year is eclectically topical," said Nato Thompson, Seattle Art Fair Artistic Director. "We were inspired by Wunderkammers, cabinets of curiosity from the 16th century that displayed artifacts garnered and pilfered from across the seven seas. This program ideally takes the spirit of interdisciplinary, intersectionality and the post-human as touchstones for a 21st-century version."

Special programming from Bigert & Bergström, Gregory Blackstock, Center for PostNatural History, Molly Crabapple, Stephanie Dinkins, Bread Face, Mark Gibson, Patricia Piccinini, Nadia Hironaka and Matthew Suib.

In anticipation of the fair, we decided to share with you some of our favorite works and exhibitors that will participate this year. Notable mentions include Heather Day for Joshua Liner Gallery, Super Future Kid for Mindy Solomon Gallery, Taylor Schultek for Gallery Poulsen and Laura Berger for Hashimoto Contemporary.

The Seattle Art Fair opens August 1st at the CenturyLink Field in Seattle, Washington. Take a look at the entire exhibitor list HERE and learn more HERE.
