Stick & Poke Tattoos by Poetic Pokes
Having always loved the idea of skin as canvas, Lis Pico (@poeticpokes) fell in love tattooing as a form of mark-making because of its spirit of freedom, uniqueness, and intentionality. It is human. It is poetry. It’s more than a tattoo. At the Fair Friday – Sunday

Durational Performance: I CAN’T HAVE ANYONE SEE ME LIKE THIS
A durational performance by Ryan Semegran, Joseph Sioui, and Ian Votaw. Happening Thursday 6pm-until artists can no longer physically perform
On Opening Night, Ryan Semegran moves about the Fair with cinder blocks tied to their wrists and ankles by decorative ribbons and lace. Joseph Sioui and Ian Votaw, also bound to cinder blocks, accompany them with a jazz arrangement of a Wendat ancestral chant, Wenoyane’ Yanino. Sioui plays drums and an assortment of flutes and chimes, while Votaw plays bass. The performance continues until they can no longer move from exhaustion.
This work of performance explores what it feels like, as a minority, to experience discrimination in any form, and the external limitations placed on the expression of these feelings outwardly. The artists tap into the constraints minority communities feel in expressing their emotions and the pressures they feel to ‘keep going’ despite the pain they feel. Their expression of emotion carries with it the societal reproach for being “messy,” “emotional,” “angry,” or “violent.”
The ribbons and lace tying the cinder blocks to Semegran are beautiful, intricate, and delicate—can they withstand the weight?
New on the Scene
Art should never be elite.
The New Futures program is part of our continued mission to break down traditional barriers of the contemporary art world by giving prizing to talented, often underrepresented, emerging artists. Each recipient is given free exhibition space at The Other Art Fair along with access to networks and opportunities designed to jump-start their careers.
Anna Mikhaela Reyes
Anna’s romantic drawings allow something beautiful to bloom even in the darkest corners of one’s being. Her drawings tenderly intertwine personal vulnerabilities and interpersonal connection. She explores this blend of romance and melancholy through botany and the human figure. A bittersweet beauty really.
Mandla is rewriting history, one artwork at a time. His oil portraits confront the pervasive impact of colonization and neocolonialism left across Africa. By acknowledging this troubled past, his works encourage you to become empowered and take back the power that is rightfully yours.
Atinuke’s artistic practice centers on her personal history, connection and identity. She’s an interdisciplinary artist and designer who has lived on three continents. She incorporates how these experiences have reshaped her world time and time again. Her works are rooted in the traditional culture and practices of Nigeria, Western woodworking techniques and modern art processes.
