Greener Future

In 2019, The Other Art Fair is setting itself the challenge of creating a Greener Future... 

Teaming up with Broadcaster and Head of Collections at Soho House Kate Bryan as curator, we have programmed a year-long series of events, initiatives and exhibitions to take the steps to becoming more sustainable.

In our efforts to join the greener side at our March London edition, we will be hosting a number of exciting new features.  See our full programme below

Fair Founder Ryan Stanier introduces our new venture for 2019 and beyond - A 'Greener Future'

"I started The Other Art Fair back in 2011 to support unrepresented artists. Since then we have sold over 20,000 artworks, welcomed over 200,000 visitors and worked with more than 3,000 artists across 20 countries.

Eight years on and our mission has expanded. I believe we can still do more but in order to continue working with artists, and developing events which both stimulate and surprise our audiences, we must aim to do this in a sustainable way.

Events so often have a negative impact on the environment and an art fair is no different. We have therefore set ourselves the challenge to be more thoughtful in every decision we make as an organisation and our commitment is to be as environmentally aware as possible. We are now working towards being wholly sustainable and across all our fairs we are taking steps to get much closer to that.

To do this we are working with Broadcaster and Head of Collections at Soho House – Kate Bryan. Kate is very passionate about the sustainability and she will be curating a number of initiatives to highlight many of the issues faced by both artists and organisations like ourselves.

The Other Art Fair is committed to making a difference. I believe we are currently having a positive impact on the art world by cultivating the emerging part of the market, but in order to create art we need a healthy world to be both inspired by and to live in.

It’s yet another reason we are The “Other” Art Fair." Ryan Stanier, Founder of The Other Art Fair
