ROBB REPORT: This San Francisco Condo Doubles as a Gallery Showcasing Black Artists
Located in the heart of San Francisco’s South Market District, 181 Fremont is the tallest residential building on the West Coast. In addition to its 68 luxury units, it’s also an art gallery, with an exhibition showing over 20 artworks by 15 Black artists running now until the end of December.
The show, dubbed Podium, takes place within a staged apartment, one that you can in fact buy for $6.8 million (artworks not included). Art advisor and consultant Holly Baxter curated the show, and design elements were selected by the interiors practice at AubreyMaxwell—for the latter, the team opted to use only B&B Italia furnishings, with the exception of a few rugs from cc-tapis.
The artworks range from painting and sculpture to photography and mixed media. Since the show is in an apartment, they’re spread out across many different rooms, so it’s less white wall gallery and more open house at a collector’s stylish digs.
