The Satellite Art Show has officially opened applications for its upcoming art fair in Austin, Texas. The organization’s first non-Miami iteration of the event, Satellite Austin is scheduled for March 13-17, 2019 on site at the Museum of Human Achievement (MoHA), a warehouse art space located in East Austin. The fair will run during South By Southwest (SXSW).

According to the fair’s mission, Satellite Austin will showcase “young dealers, artist-run spaces and non-profits.” Over the past four years, Satellite’s main event, which runs concurrently with Art Basel Miami, has functioned somewhat as a visitor respite from the market-driven crush of other art fairs. The first three years of the event were held in hotel rooms; each exhibitor could inventively create a small, alternative space. The 2018 edition of the fair changed this model, offering exhibitors “storage containers, construction offices and a ‘drive-in’ mobile platform (art vehicle parking).”

In addition to utilizing MoHA’s building, Satellite Austin will include large-scale outdoor works and ‘drive-in’ mobile exhibition spaces.

Applications for Satellite Austin cost $50 and are open to, via the fair’s description: “galleries, curators, artist-run spaces, non-profits, art collectives, performative platforms, artists and artist teams” The deadline to apply is February 20, 2019.
