This autumn the UK’s leading artist fair returns to the Old Truman Brewery for its tenth anniversary edition. The Other Art Fair has fast become the satellite arts destination to Frieze, presenting alongside Moniker Art Fair and Pinta London all within the cultural hub of the Old Truman Brewery, East London.
Chosen by this year’s selection committee of art collector Sven Hansen and curator and dealer James Birch, the fair will present work by 130 artists from across the globe alongside an action-packed programme of events. The Other Art Fair has become a pioneering platform for uncovering new and emerging talents, enabling artists to form direct relationships with potential buyers and launch their careers within the contemporary art world.
This October’s events programme includes London First, a new permanent feature for the fair. London First will present the work of 20 artists who have never exhibited in London before, including artists from Guatemala, South Korea and beyond. In a specially curated section of the fair, visitors will be able to discover a selection of the most exciting, diverse emerging artists from across the globe.
For brave visitors with inquisitive minds, interactive theatre collective non zero one have been invited to perform a creative new experience for those who answer ‘Yes’ to the question ‘Are you Curious?’. Drawing together backgrounds in theatre, dance, movement, live art, photography, multimedia and performance, the group work to create opportunities for their audiences to become authors of their own experience.
Now in its tenth anniversary edition The Other Art Fair has achieved global recognition with fairs not only in its home town of London, but further editions in Sydney and Bristol.
Director Ryan Stanier comments, “Hosting the 10th UK edition of The Other Art Fair this October will see the fair reach 90,000 visitors. It’s London’s enthusiasm to discover the next artistic talent which fuels the fairs popularity. The unique positioning of connecting art buyers with artists is what creates the fairs vibrant atmosphere. Along with 130 selected artists the fair will host everything from pop-up restaurants, interactive theatre performances, 20 international artists plus a few surprise guests.”
