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 July London edition, we will be hosting a number of exciting new features. See our full programme below
"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

Final Artist Announcing Soon!
Inspired by natural forms, Stéphanie Kilgast’s artwork is an ode to nature and its current biodiversity. Plants, mushrooms, insects and other animals encounter in a vibrant swirl of colors under her brush or sculpting tools.
Since 2017, in her series “Discarded Objects”, she grows colorful organic sculptures on human-made objects, celebrating the beauty of nature in a dialogue with humanity, questioning the lost balance between human activities and nature.
Her work has a cheerful post apocalyptic feel to it, a reassuring reminder that nature has the capacity to grow back, if we only let it.
Her miniature work and more recent sculptures have been exhibited in America, Asia and Europe.
French, Born in 1985, Frankfurt am Main, Germany, currently resides in Vannes, France.
