Past Event: Call For Entries: The Other Art Fair 2015
The fair will take place from 23rd - 26th April 2015 at Victoria House, Bloomsbury.
What is The Other Art Fair?
The Other Art Fair is the UK’s largest artist-led fair, attracting an audience of 13,000 ABC1 art buyers, collectors, journalists and gallerists from across London. It provides a unique platform from which artists can independently showcase their work to gallerists, curators, critics and collectors. It's not just about selling - these four days enable artists to launch their work in the contemporary art world, gauge the public’s response to their pieces and meet fellow artists for potential future collaborations. The fair is wide-reaching in its audience, attracting individuals who support artistic practice in other ways: advertising agencies, designers and corporate companies looking to commission pieces.
It aims to connect art lovers of all tastes and experience directly with the most talented emerging artists before they are signed. For artists, the fair is a platform for self representation: a chance to independently showcase their work, sell directly to buyers and meet key protagonists of London’s contemporary art scene - so what are you waiting for?
The seventh edition of the fair in October 2014 welcomed 13,125 visitors and attracted representatives from over 200 leading contemporary galleries and art organisations such as Tate, Blain Southern, Sotheby’s Institute, Rosenfeld Porcini, Gazelli Art House, White Cube, Christie's, Lisson Gallery and Hauser & Wirth.
Many artists have been approached about public and private commissions as well as post-fair sales and gallery collaborations.
“Over the weekend I sold eighteen works, all to new clients. What a great show, congratulations, it was faultless.” M. J. Forster
“I found it most rewarding. You were all so helpful and informative, and helped to make the whole event run so smoothly. It felt as though you were really there in support of the individual artists.” Hermione Carline
The Other Art Fair 2015 will also play host to other art activities including:
Pre-Fair Workshop at leading contemporary gallery: discussions led by fair director Ryan Stanier, a guest gallerist and artist mentor.
