In January we posted about exciting happenings in the SF arts community. Since then, there has been a recent flurry of world renowned art establishments announcing their plans to migrate to the Bay Area:
Earlier in the month, it was announced that Gagosian Gallery and John Berggruen Gallery, will have spaces across the street from the renovated and expanded San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Gagosian is slated to open May 14, several days after the much anticipated reopening of SFMOMA.
Several weeks after this news two Chelsea galleries, Anton Kern and Andrew Kreps, announced that they will partner up to open a temporary San Francisco gallery at Minnesota Street Projects. The opening reception is set for April 28th and will feature artists from both galleries’ rosters.
It has been announced that Max Hollein will reside as the new director of FAMSF, which comprises of the de Young Museum and the Legion of Honor. Hollein, originally from Austria, is currently the director of three prominent museums in Frankfurt, Germany.
Untitled Art Fair, associated with Miami Art Week, will host an Untitled SF in the Dogpatch neighborhood in January 2017 and will feature 40 to 60 galleries.
Finally, Pace Gallery will open a space in downtown Palo Alto, with a James Turrell inaugural exhibition slated to open April 2016.
