“It is important that art lift up ideas. Beauty needs to be present at every event. There are so many values to be expressed in that moment and it should be for all of your senses.” -Alice Waters at this year’s Innovators luncheon.
@alicelouisewaters was honored for her pioneering cuisine and innovative collaborations with artists, designers, and educators around the world.

It’s been just over a week since #fogfair closed! We loved welcoming nearly 12,000 visitors to see the incredible selection of art and design on view. If you missed your chance to see the fair in person, head over to @artsy to see many of the works that were on view!

Seamlessly blending contemporary art and celebrity culture, Alex Israel’s “Casting” (2015) appears to be a plaster and silicone mold, in two parts, that one could feasibly use to reproduce the familiar L.A. icon—the Oscar award. However, upon closer inspection, it becomes clear that both halves of the "mold" are themselves tromp l’oeil painted bronze castings. Unable to reproduce the trademarked figure as a statue itself, Israel adopted the negative space around the Oscar as subject. Make sure to see this sculpture about sculpture in the current exhibition “Close at Hand” at Gagosian San Francisco, on view through February 24!

Rachel Whiteread, the first female artist to win the Turner Prize in 1993, often works in monumental scale, exploring themes of space, memory, familiarity, and our interaction with the everyday. In contrast, “Untitled (On / Off)” (2001), the intimately small stainless steel casts of electrical boxes encourage us to interact closely with the object, embodying the theme of Gagosian San Francisco’s current show “Close at Hand,” on view through February 24. #RachelWhiteread #CloseatHand #GagosianSF #TurnerPrize #SanFrancisco #BayArea #fogfair #fogfair2018 #fogdesignandart #fogfairtakeover @gagosiangallery

In Davide Balula's “Mimed Sculpture​ (Alberto Giacometti, Suspended Ball, 1930–1931)” (2017), currently on view in “Close at Hand: Modern and Contemporary Sculpture” at Gagosian San Francisco, the mime shapes the air with her hands, forming a sculpture originally made of plaster and metal by Alberto Giacometti. Fun Fact: With this work, the gallery will be accepting cryptocurrencies for the first time!
It ​will be performed every Friday 1–2PM and Saturday 2–4PM (with the exception of Saturday, January 20) through the duration of the exhibition. Look out for a sneak peak of the live performance on our story.
