August 4-7: Seattle Art Fair

Though only in its second edition, the Seattle Art Fair has already attracted an impressive array of galleries from both American cities (Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York, and more) and international locales (Buenos Aires, Seoul, Cologne, beyond). This year’s exhibitors will show work by the likes of Donald Judd, Damien Hirst and Lee Friedlander, but big names aren’t the only draw. Sculpture, installations, and performance will come to adjacent city neighborhoods through the off-site Projects sector; plus, the Talks program will bring creative duos together in conversation, like actor Kyle MacLachlan and musician/actress Carrie Brownstein, and art historian Branden Joseph and musician Kim Gordon.
