“California design is often about breaking the rules and creating a new vocabulary; we believe their work does exactly that,” said Ray Azoulay of the artists on feature at the third annual FOG Art+Design fair that took place in January.

The third annual FOG Design+Art fair did not disappoint the throngs of supporters who came to view the contemporary works of the 43 curated exhibitors. A show standout, Ray Azoulay’s L.A.-based Obsolete/Slete Gallery debuted the perfectly juxtaposed works of Berlin-based painter Goran Djurovic and London design duo Hannah Plumb and James Russell of James Plumb (both shown here).

“California design is often about breaking the rules and creating a new vocabulary; we believe their work does exactly that,” says Azoulay. Benefiting the S.F. Museum of Modern Art, the fair ran in mid-January at the city’s Fort Mason Center. “The idea of bringing together contemporary art and design in a single event is so perfectly suited for San Francisco,” says FOG Forum Chair Douglas Durkin. “We live in a wonderfully diverse city in a region of incredible innovations, so FOG is really presenting a platform that matches the curious and forward-thinking qualities of the residents of the Bay Area.” fogfair.com.
