Registration for the 2019 Texas Contemporary Art Fair, to be held in Houston this fall, is now open to exhibitors. The 2019 fair will be returning to the George R. Brown Convention Center on October 10-13, 2019. Last year the fair had a Texas-heavy presence, as we reported here last September. It featured a dozen Texas galleries and artists, including works by Carlos García Noriega Bueno via Galeria Enrique Guerrero; Heather Tolleson presented by Zoya Tommy Gallery; and recent University of Houston MFA grad Jonathan Read.
Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma in 2017 forced cancellations to the fair that year in Houston and Miami, respectively, but the fair returned in 2018. Over the past few years we have reviewed the fair here, and live blogged it here and here (among other occasions), and have visited for opening night interviews:
We look forward to the list of 2019 participants.
Via the fair:
