Experience Art Differently

Presented by Saatchi Art, The Other Art Fair is the leading artist Fair to discover and buy art directly from the very best emerging artistic talent. Founded in London, UK in 2011, the Fairs are now strongly established across North America, the UK, and Australia, with annual and biannual editions across the globe in New York, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, London, Melbourne, Sydney, and Toronto – and plenty more to come!

The Spring and Fall New York Fairs give art lovers the opportunity to meet a curated selection of 130 independent artists and browse thousands of pieces to suit every budget under one roof. With prices starting from as little as $100, this is an art fair for everyone. Whether you’re a first-time art buyer, seasoned collector, curator, investor, gallery owner, art lover or anything in between, you are guaranteed to find something to add to (or start!) your collection.

Plus, with performances, DJ sets, immersive art installations and a fully-stocked bar awaiting you, The Other Art Fair is more than your usual art fair experience and has everything you need to enjoy a cultural, creative day out. 

Welcome To The Other Art Fair

The Other Art Fair was born from a realization of the disparity between an audience eager to discover the next big thing and talented artists struggling to gain recognition. Ten years on, the effects of the Fair’s growing reputation are not only demonstrated through the support of leading individuals in the art world but also the frequency of success stories from past exhibitors.

We are delighted that so many of our artists have been successful within the traditional gallery system: as prestigious international galleries choose to represent our artists, these individuals emerge in the spotlight of the art world as the names of the future. In addition, the nature of the Fair attracts artists with an entrepreneurial flair and long-term vision who recognize the value of the fair beyond artwork sales.

Thank you to all artists, visitors, and friends who have supported the Fair over the past ten years.
