Be Part of London's Leading Artist Fair: The Other Art Fair, April 2015

The eighth edition of The Other Art Fair will be held at the magnificent Victoria House in the heart of Bloomsbury from 23-26 April 2015.

By moving to this larger space, the curation of the fair and hence the overall visitor experience can be developed to produce the best edition of The Other Art Fair yet.

The Other Art Fair is the UK’s largest artist-led fair, attracting an audience of 13,000 ABC1 art buyers, collectors, journalists and gallerists from across London. It provides a unique platform from which artists can independently showcase their work: to gallerists, curators, critics and collectors.

Not only about selling artworks, these four days enable artists to launch their work in the contemporary art world, gauge the public’s response to their pieces and meet fellow artists for potential future collaborations. The fair is wide-reaching in its audience, attracting individuals who support artistic practice in other ways: advertising agencies, designers and corporate companies looking to commission pieces.

The seventh edition of the fair in October 2014 welcomed 13,125 visitors and attracted representatives from over 200 leading contemporary galleries and art organisations such as Tate, Blain Southern, Sotheby’s Institute, Rosenfeld Porcini, Gazelli Art House, White Cube, Christie's, Lisson Gallery and Hauser & Wirth.

Many artists at the fair have been approached about public and private commissions as well as post-fair sales and gallery collaborations. Testimonials include:

“Over the weekend I sold eighteen works, all to new clients. What a great show, congratulations, it was faultless.” M. J. Forster

“I found it most rewarding. You were all so helpful and informative, and helped to make the whole event run so smoothly. It felt as though you were really there in support of the individual artists.” Hermione Carline

Further Benefits for Exhibiting Artists include:

  • Pre-Fair workshop at leading contemporary gallery: Discussions led by fair director Ryan Stanier, a guest gallerist and artist mentor.
  • Profile on the online shop: enabling you to sell your work from the respected platform of The Other Art Fair 365 days a year
  • Additional collaborations and commissions: further external opportunities provided by the fair’s relationship with both corporate companies and art organisations
