New Futures Sydney Class of 2023 in Partnership with Ovolo Hotels

The New Futures programme in partnership with Ovolo Hotels aims to break down the traditional barriers of the art world and provides emerging artists with a career launchpad, including free exhibition space, career mentorship and a very special Artist in Residence within Ovolo’s Woolloomooloo hotel. 

Quirky Bones

Quirky bones is a multi-disciplinary artist, working mostly in textile and fibre artists. Her work in inspired by the natural world, and anatomy, creating interactive and sometimes education pieces, that challenge viewers ideas of the objects they interact with on a daily basis – expect to see anatomical rugs, tufted objects, and perhaps even wearable pieces!




Elliot Guerrisi-Watson

Elliot, also known as ‘Elbow’ has been painting since he was 13, both on the canvas and in the street. He’s worked on large scale murals as well as on canvas, combining the brush and aerosol and challenging traditional notions of painting and fine art. He’s focused on bringing viewers into the process, rather than celebrating the spectacle of art that is often reinforced in traditional art spaces.

Live Mural Painting with Elliot Guerrisi-Watson

So often murals are created in solitude and seemingly spring into existence fully-formed. But at The Other Art Fair we like to be different. Throughout the fair, Elliot-Guerrisi-Watson will be creating a mural live, with an audience watching, giving you a glimpse behind the magician’s curtain.
But it will also be a perfect reflection of the status quo. Art like this, in public spaces, is frequently ephemeral in nature, no sooner finished before it is tarnished or gone. Never will that be more true than here, nearly as soon as the paint is dry the event will be over and the mural’s life will be at its end.

‘Just Curious’ – Featured Artwork

The Other Art Fair presents ‘Just Curious’, a brand new performance and installation work created for the May Edition by young artists with disabilities, in partnership with Together2 Youth Theatre.  The work will give you the opportunity to see through the eyes of young people with physical, social or behavioural differences to experience what it’s like to exist in often inaccessible public spaces and be subjected to the constant gaze of the public, by utilising performance, movement, soundscapes and digital graphics.

The Other Art Fair is proud to welcome artists Ren Wiggins, Cleo Young, Hannah Magdaluyo, Charlotte Mac Sweeney and Bill Stellar and acknowledge neurodivergent and disabled people as consistent contributors and often trailblazers in the art world. 

  • Direction: Cleo Young, Ren Wiggins, Hannah Magdaluyo

  • Production manager: Cleo Young 
  • Music: Bill Stellar

‘Decline’ – Video + Audio Installation

‘Decline’ delves into the delicate intricacies of memory loss and the transient nature of our recollections. It presents a haunting visual representation of the gradual transience of memories, both in their vividness and accessibility, evoking a profound contemplation on the existential fear and unease that accompany the inevitable process of ageing and mortality.

As the projections unfold, viewers engage with hypnotic imagery that underscores the relentless erosion of identity and the anxiety that ensues. The visual representation of the artwork is further accentuated by the layers of fabric that the projections pass through, each layer causing a decay of image quality and an increase in abstraction. This degradation mirrors the loss of clarity and accessibility of our memories as they fade over time.

Decline prompts a thought-provoking and introspective journey, compelling viewers to explore the complexities of memory. It serves as a reminder that our memories are a precious resource that must be treasured.

Direction + Music: Sean Alves
