SEATTLE, WA.- The Seattle Art Fair, presented by AIG, announced the exhibitor list and on-site programming for its fifth edition. From August 1-4, 2019 the Seattle Art Fair will host daily talks, special projects, and performances, in addition to nearly 100 galleries from around the world.

“This milestone year is a testament to the region’s vested interest in the arts and the world’s embrace of Seattle as a viable, diverse art capital,” said Max Fishko, Seattle Art Fair Director. “We are proud to share the exhibitor list for the Seattle Art Fair’s fifth edition.”

“The Seattle Art Fair turns five this year. We are so pleased to have been involved since its inception,” said James Harris of James Harris Gallery, Seattle Art Fair Dealer Committee Member and 2019 Exhibitor. “Each year the fair has gotten more and more engaging for the Seattle audience. It is exciting to be a part of this celebration of the arts.”

For a second year, curator Nato Thompson returns to the Seattle Art Fair as Artistic Director. This year’s programming will explore themes of curiosity and wonder, featuring music, tech, natural history and artificial intelligence.

“The programming at the Seattle Art Fair this year is eclectically topical,” said Nato Thompson, Seattle Art Fair Artistic Director. “We were inspired by the Wunderkammers, cabinets of curiosity from the 16th century that displayed artifacts garnered and pilfered from across the seven seas. This program ideally takes the spirit of interdisciplinary, intersectionality and the post-human as touchstones for a 21st century version.”

Programming participants include Bigert & Bergström, Gregory Blackstock, Center for PostNatural History, Molly Crabapple, Stephanie Dinkins, Bread Face, Mark Gibson, Patricia Piccinini, Nadia Hironaka & Matthew Suib.



Visitors will be invited to perform as Bread Face, the international social media sensation known for smashing her face in bread and her ASMR performances. In her interactive installation featuring baked goods the public will be encouraged to play with the bread in whichever way they feel compelled. The final product will then be on display throughout the installation.

Transmedia artist Stephanie Dinkins will present Not The Only One (N’TOO), a voice-interactive AI robot designed to address the needs and reflect the ideals of African American people who are drastically underrepresented in the tech community. The AI storyteller is trained based on data supplied by three generations of women from one family. Visitors are invited to talk to the sculpture and participate in its evolving knowledge.

Artist duo Bigert & Bergström, known for their large-scale installations that address the intersection of humanity, nature and technology, will present Incubator for Earthquakes, a kinetic sculpture of a rattling china set on a dinner table that mimics an earthquake.
