The Other Art Fair was developed to give 90 of the best emerging artists in the UK the opportunity to sell their work directly to the general public.
We are working with an experienced selection committee made up of experts who will be reviewing each application with chosen artists being given the chance to exhibit at The Other Art Fair.

British-Nigerian artist, Yinka Shonibare, MBE, is recognised for his exploration of colonialism and post-colonialism within the contemporary context of globalization. Following his launch onto an international stage at Documenta 10 with his piece, ‘Gallantry and Criminal Conversation’ in 2002, Shonibare was nominated for the Turner prize in 2004. His major mid-career survey toured to the MCA Sydney, the Brooklyn Museum, New York, and the Smithsonian Institution, Washington DC. In 2010, ‘Nelson’s Ship in a Bottle’ became his first public art commission on the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square.
