The Other Art Fair was born from a realisation of the disparity between an audience eager to discover the next big thing and talented artists struggling to gain recognition. Nine years on and with fairs strongly established in Australia, the US and the UK, 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 recognise the value of the fair beyond artwork sales.

Thank you to all artists, visitors, and friends who have supported the fair over the past seven years. I look forward to welcoming you to our fourth Melbourne edition at The Facility in Kensington from 21 – 24 May 2020.
