Two art fairs will debut in Silicon Valley next year. “There’s an undeniable force of international tech-business and venture capital money in the Valley region,” says founder of Art Miami, Nick Korniloff, who will direct the new fair Art Silicon Valley/San Francisco (9-12 October).
Meanwhile, the Hamptons Expo Group, which ran the San Francisco Fine Art Fair until last year, will launch the Silicon Valley Contemporary next Spring at the San Jose Convention Center (10-13 April), where clients can purchase works via Google Glasses and tablets. The Hamptons Expo Group president Rick Friedman says: “A lot of corporations out there are building collections—Adobe, Facebook, Google, Cisco—and we’re actively involved with them.”
