Two art fairs coming to Silicon Valley

Organisers turn their sights on tech industry

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.”
