The selected artists will showcase their work across four days, with mediums spanning installation, sculpture, mixed media, printmaking, painting, video works and photography. The Other Art Fair will be presented during the same period as the international art fair Sydney Contemporary, which will take over the Carriageworks precinct.
“Sydney’s first edition of The Other Art Fair offers visitors the opportunity to buy directly from the best emerging and undiscovered artists from around Australia and beyond,” says Emilya Colliver, Sydney Fair Director of The Other Art Fair.
“The Other Art Fair provides a platform for new and experienced collectors alike to meet and engage with artists directly, ask questions and understand the artist’s story and creative process,” she says. “It is an exciting chance to meet and invest in an artist who might just be the ‘next big thing’ in the arts world. We are offering the full spectrum – some of our artists are new ‘break-ut’ artists whilst others are quite accomplished in their field.”
Artists presenting work at The Other Art Fair include emerging Korean artist collective Reissue Korea who will be creating sculptures and installation, Sydney-based artist collective Black Parrot, which includes 2014 Sulman Prize winning artist Andrew Sullivan and 2015 Archibald finalist, American-born, Sydney-based painter Kim Leutwyler.
The Other Art Fair was inaugurated in London in November 2011 and has since presented eight successful editions in the United Kingdom, firmly establishing itself as London’s favourite alternative art event.
