Untitled is a damn good art fair. Plain and simple. I found new works from some of my favorite artists (like David Leggett) as well as new artists and galleries, so I can't complain. Take my $40.
A refreshing surprise at Untitled SF was the presence of the tech community (which I guess shouldn't have been surprising since we were in their backyard), but it was great to see an old friend of mine, Facebook.
They had their own booth featuring an artist (Kira Dominguez Hultgren) that's a part of their FB Air program (Facebook Artist in Residency Program), as well as a create-your-own-screenprint station put on by their analog lab.
While that's all fine and dandy...here's what we really came for.
The Most Interesting Booths go to...
Fort Gansevoort - LA + NYC
Fort Gansevoort brought works by Zoë Buckman and Christopher Myers.
BEERS had a booth of exclusively colorful Andy Dixon paintings.
Charlie James Gallery - LA
Finding a new gallery is kind of like finding a diamond on the beach with a metal detector. It rarely happens, but when it does, it's so rewarding. Enter Charlie James Gallery from Los Angeles. I already know they're a dope gallery based on the artist they brought, Lucia Hierro (aka bad bitch).
Zipper Galeria - São Paulo
São Paulo is one of the best cities for art + design, so it's no shocker their booth was awesome, with works by Janaina Mello Landini.
Zidoun-Bossuyt Gallery - Luxembourg
CULT Aimee Friberg Exhibitions - San Francisco
CULT exhibitions brought a nice bubble gum pink booth to compliment the works of Masako Miki.
Freight + Volume - NYC
A local LES gallery I frequent. I was particularly drawn to David Kramer's paintings.
Winston Wachter Fine Art - Seattle
It's not the easiest thing to make ceramics really cool, but Claire Partington did.
Over the Influence - Los Angeles
Every time I see them at a fair I mentally applaud them for their clever name. The works by Todd James were pretty cool too.
Most Interesting Individual Art Pieces (so not the booth as a whole)
And that's it...until next year.
