The Other Art Fair has announced it will host its fifth edition at East London’s primary destination for creative events, The Old Truman Brewery taking over a massive 22,000 Square feet .
Coinciding with Frieze Week, the most important date in London’s art calendar, this change in date and location signifies a new era for The Other Art Fair particularly as they will share the space with Moniker Art Fair. Visitors to The Truman Brewery will be able to experience both fairs in what will be a showcase of independent and established talent all under one roof. This spectacle is estimated to attract 10,000 + visitors, forming one of the major satellite events of London’s Art Week when 60,000 visitors descend on the city to form an unparalleled international art audience.
The Other Art Fair is unique in its approach of using a selection committee of industry experts to handpick 100 of the most exciting unrepresented artists from across the UK and beyond. The Other Art Fair selection committee for autumn 2013 includes four eminent figures in their respective fields: Artist and Turner Prize nominee Yinka Shonibare MBE, senior curator at the National Gallery David Jaffe, Director of the Saatchi Gallery Rebecca Wilson and Founder and Director of Paradise Row Nick Hackworth.
The larger space that the Truman Brewery provides also allows The Other Art Fair and Moniker Art Fair to expand their activity programme with ambitious projects, live music, and an expansive restaurant and bar for visitors in need of refreshment. Events already scheduled to take place at the fairs include a book store run by world leading art book publishers, Phaidon, and taxidermy classes for visitors keen to explore this quirky and historic art form.
