With the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art’s doors shuttered during its extensive renovation, where are the local aesthetes to go? This month, the center of design in the city is shifting to Fort Mason where the new FOG Design + Art fair will harness the Bay Area’s creative impulses for five days. “Fairs bring something to life in a way that a picture or jpeg can’t do,” says interior designer Douglas Durkin who serves as Designers Forum Chair for the event. Dealers as diverse as Hedge in San Francisco, Los Angeles’ Reform Gallery, and Hostler Burrows in New York will join a roster of modern and contemporary furniture, design, and art exhibitors who will assemble their wares in the cavernous waterfront space. And expect eye-catching booths built from both found and technologically-advanced materials. After all, the new fair that kicks off with a preview gala honoring Elaine McKeon and benefiting SFMOMA on Thursday, January 16, is the brainchild of Stanlee Gatti and was dreamed up by co-chairs Gatti, Durkin, Roth Martin, Katie Paige, and Allison Speer.Screen Shot 2014-01-11 at 7.30.29 PM
