Intelligent, beautiful and informative, Aesthetica is one of the leading publications for art, design and photography, and is the official media partner of The Other Art Fair. 



THE OTHERS LIVE: SARAH MAPLE

Can too many critical comments end up silencing an artist? Or is it fuel for the fire?​

The Other Art Fair is pleased to present 'Comment is free' a new performance by artist Sarah Maple, curated by London-based curator Valentina Fois.

In this work Maple invites the audience to leave comments on her work, a curated stand of mix-media art works. Alongside professional actors, Maple will read out a randomly picked selection of comments during each performance. By taking ownership of the comments, Maple wishes to raise the question as to whether exposure to comments can help or hinder an artists work.

Sarah Maple completed a BA in Fine Art from Kingston University in 2007. In the same year she won the ‘4 New Sensations’, The Saatchi Gallery. Since then Sarah’s artwork, films and performances have been exhibited internationally, including A.I.R Gallery (NY), Southbank Centre (London), Kunisthoone (Estonia), The New Art Exchange (Nottingham) and Golden Thread Gallery (Belfast). Sarah has also been invited to speak at many events, including Amnesty International.​
