Fog Fair 2018
We just had the Fog Design+Art Fair, which is one of my favorite events. Once again Bjørn Design was a Fog Forum member, which benefits the SFMOMA’s Department of Architecture and Design. Unfortunately this year I was down for the count: a poorly timed infection meant that I stayed home for much of the fair, missing all the fun parties and lectures. On the very last day, however, I did manage to drag myself out of bed to visit the fair.
Color, line, texture, and ingenuity were on display, and this was our chance here in SF to see some of the best art and design from galleries from all around the world. Here are a few of my favorite things.
If you know me, you’re aware of my commitment to the local art community. So I was happy to see some of my favorite local galleries supporting local artists.
Emil Lukas’ work shown bright at Hosfelt Gallery, with wrapped string creating phenomenological experiences. The pieces had a luminosity and depth that was surprising!
Finally, for a former sheep farmer in me, “Mouton Transhumant, 1988” by Francois-Xavier Lalanne. Say no more…this is my type of farming.
