Now in its third edition, the Marfa Invitational art fair brings together galleries, artists, and collectors to the remote desert town of Marfa, Texas. Part of the Big Bend, Marfa was established in 1880 as a water railway stop, then as a border trading outpost, and eventually becoming a military base. In 1971, Donald Judd relocated his artistic practice from New York to Marfa, setting up his home and studio in the former military base. Subsequently, Marfa became a hub for minimalist art. Marfa Invitational presents a wide range of art from outsider and folk art to sculpture, public installations, performances and contemporary art.
