leading voices, and meet fellow exhibitors for potential future collaborations. Presenting its 12th edition in 2020, Art San Diego is known for its exceptional presentation, with a curated selection of exhibitors presenting for sale one-of-a-kind works in a gallery-style venue.

THE NEW LOCATION AT THE SAN DIEGO CONVENTION CENTER WAS BETTER, BIGGER, AND FELT MORE ACCESSIBLE. THERE WERE MORE PEOPLE, AND I WAS HAPPY TO GET NEW CLIENTS AND GALLERY PLACEMENT. IT DEFINITELY EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS. I WAS VERY PLEASED WITH THE RESULTS. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR ALL OR RMG'S ATTENTION. EVERYONE TREATED ME VERY WELL.

Ready to capture the moment and venture forth toward new levels of success?

2 FAIRS | ONE VENUE Art San Diego is two fairs under one roof. Here's a closer look at what makes each pavilion within Art San Diego unique. ART SAN DIEGO GALLERY PAVILION

Together, Art San Diego and the [SOLO] Project offer collectors, gallery owners, art dealers, designers, and shoppers the unique opportunity to connect with blue-chip galleries and emerging artists—all under one roof.

The Art San Diego Gallery Pavilion features wellestablished galleries, art publishers, and artist collectives. It's why thousands of industry insiders in search of cutting-edge contemporary art and design from galleries worldwide flock to San Diego each fall.

THE [SOLO] PROJECT PAVILION

After its successful launch in 2018, the [SOLO] Project is officially incorporated into this iconic art fair. The [SOLO] Pavilion is the ultimate venue for independent artists, fine art photographers, functional object artists, and designers to be discovered—not only by gallery owners and art dealers but also by collectors and enthusiasts in search of exciting new works.
