Opening Night Party at artMRKT, San Francisco's modern and contemporary art fair

This is the opening night party for artMRKT San Francisco, the Bay Area’s premier contemporary and modern art fair. It will feature 70 galleries from around the globe, bringing some of the world’s most intriguing artists and galleries to San Francisco. In showcasing historically important work alongside relevant contemporary pieces and projects, artMRKT will create an ideal context for the discovery, exploration and acquisition of art.

There is a limited number of free courtesy tickets available for the meetup attendees. Please make sure that you change your RSVP at least 5 days in advance if you are not able to attend; there is a general custom to sign-up for events and then not showing up that is very discouraging for event organizers.

    The event was a spectacle of art. Very glad I was there.

    Alex, thanks for putting this together! It got super crowded and I saw a few pieces I really liked. Yeah, the turn out is usually about 50% for meetups. I've run a couple and it's annoying that people RSVP then forget about it. It would have been helpful to have the early meet time and location larger in the event. I did not see it until earlier when I was looking for info on how to find you. Also, it's annoying for everyone, but asking people beforehand at least once or twice to confirm their RSVPs helps.

      Thank you for the suggestion, MJ. I did emailed the attendees four days and one day before the event with the meet time and location. Maybe daily reminders for a week would work!

    70 galleries, most of the stuff very good, tons of people, free drinks, free tickets. As usual half of the attendees didn't show up, not even bother to change the RSVP or send an email - I wonder how come courtesy ends when there is an anonymous person organizing events for you for free ?

    I too did not see the pre-event meetup and am still working away here rather than at Circa having drinks with you all. I shall head over to the Festival Pavillion directly for 8pm and hopefully be able to run into you all there.

    I'll meet you at the restaurant, but at 7 to meet you all & head over. I only saw the 8 pm time and did not plan enough to come at 6:30.

    I see I am now on the "attending" list. Where do we meet? And can I pick the pass up and meet you if I can not meet at the restaurant?

    Alexander, I'm sorry but I'm not going to be able to make it that night after all. Please give my spot to someone else. I'll look forward to another event. Jeff

    Weird. I thought I was one of the first people to RSVP, yet I didn't make the cut? :-/

      there are 3 art events this week-end with this group; rule was to invite no more than one event per member. See you Saturday at ArtPAD.

      Ok, I'll take myself off ARTpad. I'd rather go to this.

    The Preview Pass starts at 6. Is that event separate from the party that starts at 8? So you would need to have tickets for each event?

      This is the party after the preview. Is not the Preview Pass.

    Seems like a long shot at this point, but oh well.

    Hmmm, there are 7 courtesy tickets, 4 people attending but no spots left? That doesn't make sense to me. I"m happy to join the wait list, but it sounds like this will be a big event, so I'm wondering why there is an attendance limit at all, unless that's only for the courtesy tickets. Does anyone know how much the tickets are otherwise?

    Thanks...

    Looks like people are automatically put on the waitlist when we RSVP yes. What's the super-secret password to get in :) ?
