Sea Farm City for PMF
January 27, 2017
Sea Farm City creates and sells limited edition books, zines, sculptures, furniture and other unique ephemera. We choose to work with installation artists, performance artists and sculptors who’s practice is often limited in it’s collectability because of its scale, time, and site sensitivity or remote locations. Our goal is to develop a market from what naturally comes out of our artist's studios.
For Open Space Baltimore's Publications and Multiples Fair, we’ll exhibit a diverse range of multiples that explore concepts and challenges within our artist’s larger practice. Works derived from site specific projects include: Justin Lowman’s artist book Barn Rays, Patrick Gilbert’s Appaloosa Shipping Stool, Corry Arnold's Drawing the Line and Matt Allison's Yes Trespassing.
Other works we will represent at PMF deal with the concepts of: Performance (Ryan Bulis' Almosts); Scale and Labor (Matthew Usinowicz’s Trade Tools and Robyn Kessel's Toys); and Memory (Nicole Antebi’s The Last Menagerie).
In addition to operating as an online gallery and shop, Sea Farm City is committed to maintaining a physical presence in the contemporary art world through our independent curatorial practice and participation in art book fairs. Some of our past projects include The Commissary for Spectacular Subdivisions (2014) in Joshua Tree, CA; Looking Local: A Library of Place (2016) at Antenna Gallery in New Orleans; and Open House/ Expanded Flat (2016) at our headquarters in Downtown Los Angeles.
