CALL FOR ARTISTS: THE OTHER ART FAIR
Deadline: Friday 1st July
6-9 OCT 2016
The Other Art Fair returns to the iconic Old Truman Brewery this autumn on 6-9 October. Taking place during Frieze week, the fair presents the major satellite event of London's Art Week. An unmissable event in the global art calendar, Frieze focuses the spotlight on London with international collectors, gallerists and critics flying into the capital for these crucial few days. The Other Art Fair gives artists the chance to exhibit to this prime audience as one of the best 130 emerging artists working today. Not only about selling artworks, 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. Continuing to grow within the art world, The Other Art Fair is recognized as the definitive place to discover exciting and emerging talent. We were delighted with the success of our 12th edition in April 2016, an edition that welcomed over 14,000 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 Gagosian. Many artists have been approached about public and private commissions as well as postfair sales and gallery collaborations. All of which is testament to London's desire for direct access to cutting edge work. ‘A great way of getting your work seen by buyers and gallerists, I’ve seen an increase in sales with each fair. The Other Art Fair has enabled me to consolidate relationships with buyers and artists, and gain a real presence in the London art world.’ Michael Swallow, April 2016 Exhibitor
