Your Guide to FOG Design+Art 2023

This week in San Francisco, the ninth iteration of FOG Design+Art returns from January 19—22. Following the much-awaited preview gala on Wednesday at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA), the fair’s 2023 edition will launch at Fort Mason Center for Arts and Culture, where attendees will find nearly 50 international galleries sharing presentations of art and design, along with a noteworthy roster of FOG Talks.

“We are excited to present the 2023 edition of the fair, bringing together a suite of returning favorites and first-time exhibitors from around the world,” said Douglas Durkin of the fair’s community steering committee. “Each year our list of exhibitors somehow manages to top the year before. With carefully curated exhibitions and really thoughtful presentations of truly outstanding works for art and design, we couldn’t be more thrilled with this year’s presentation.”

Fairgoers will find this year’s galleries hailing from cities like Chicago, Milan, New York, London, Mexico City, Monte Carlo, San Francisco, and Los Angeles—including newcomers like Casemore Kirkeby, Nonaka-Hill, Night Gallery, Gió Marconi, Marc Selwyn Fine Art, and Nilufar Gallery. Meanwhile, returning presenters will include art spaces like locals Haines Gallery, Jessica Silverman, Jenkins Johnson Gallery, Miki Meng, Rebecca Camacho Presents, and Crown Point Press; New York galleries James Cohan, Michael Rosenfeld Gallery, R & Company, Mathew Marks Gallery, Pace Gallery, David Zwirner, and Marian Goodman Gallery; and those like Galerie Chantal Crousel, Gallery FUMI, pt.2 Gallery, Volume Gallery, and kurimanzutto from elsewhere.

Outside of the main booths, visitors will want to pay attention to the FOG Talks taking place daily. The schedule includes discussions like Yves Béhar, Fernando Laposse, and Ivy Ross in conversation on the topic “Material Matters,” “The Contemporary Conversation: Museum Directors Talk about Making Museums Matter More for Today… and Tomorrow,” presented by Uovo, the artist Machine Dazzle in conversation with Tony Bravo of the San Francisco Chronicle on “The Radical, Queer Beauty of Machine Dazzle”; and several others, spanning topics like the life and work of Edward Hopper, “Generative Art and the Future of NFTs,” talks between Bay Area artists, and more.
