The 7th annual Texas Contemporary features more than 75 exhibitors.
After taking a one-year hiatus in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, Art Market Productions will present its most robust edition of its modern and contemporary Texas Contemporary art fair. Now in its seventh year, the show will feature more than 75 galleries from around the world to mark “considerable growth” from its previous outings. The event will run October 4 to 7, with its Opening Night Preview on October 4 from 6 to 10 p.m.
Exhibitors in the fair will include Claire Oliver Gallery, La Sala Art Gallery, QingYunGe Gallery, Chloe Gallery and Arcadia Contemporary, to name a few. On view will be an array of contemporary realism to more contemporary works, providing collectors with a breadth of items to suit their needs. At the booths attendees will find artwork by artists such as Gabi Trinkaus, Alfredo Romero, Mr. Zhou, Joe Coffey, Carrie Graber, Shaun Downey, Malcolm T. Liepke, Serge Marshennikov, Jeffrey Ripple, Denis Sarazhin and Adam Vinson.
Texas Contemporary, which will include public installations, talks, performances and panels throughout its run, continues its partnership with important regional institutions. Among them are Contemporary Art Museum Houston—the longtime beneficiary partner; Museum of Fine Arts Houston; the Menil Collection; Asia Society of Texas; and the Houston Design Center. The fair will be open to the public October 5 and 6 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and on October 7 from noon to 6 p.m.
