WHAT IS THE OTHER ART FAIR? The Other Art Fair was born from a realisation of the disparity between London art lovers eager to discover the next big thing and talented artists struggling to gain recognition. Seven years on, and 25 fairs later, 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 exhibiting artists.

“The Other Art Fair was a terrific experience. It is rare to find a show of this calibre in which each individual artist gets the opportunity to show their own selections. The atmosphere was very upbeat and supportive and attendance was excellent.” Harry Agress

“The Other Art Fair’s professionalism was top notch, and they created a high-energy fair focused on outstanding art. I came away with artist friends from all over the world, sales, and the day after the fair, a meeting in Manhattan with art consultant executives. They did a great job introducing potential buyers to emerging artists.” Adam Daley Wilson

“The Other Art Fair is a wonderfully curated show showcasing some terrific artists. I met gallerists, journalists and curators and planted many seeds for my fledgling career.” Heather Blanton

HOW IT WORKS Apply online at • Click ‘Applying’ then ‘Apply Now’ and follow the instructions to complete the 3-page form. • Upload 4 artwork images, an artist statement about your practice, a brief history of your qualifications/experience and your reasons for applying. Your application will be judged by a selection committee. Each edition has a new committee with a fresh set of opinions. Successful applicants will receive a confirmation letter and DocuSign contract. A 30% deposit is required to secure your stand. The remaining 70% is due 6 weeks before the fair. Exhibitors will receive an exhibitor manual, marketing pack and curation guide. The exhibitor workshop is held 5-6 weeks before the fair. Unlike other artist fairs where stands are allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis, the fair is carefully curated by a Guest Curator. This greatly improves both the visitor and exhibitor experience. The majority of stands are U-shaped with some L-shaped stands. The size of your stand depends on the selection made at the application stage. This length includes side walls, i.e. a 16 linear foot stand = 1 x 8 foot back wall + 2 x 4 foot back walls ; a 5 linear metre stand = 1 x 3 metre back wall + 2 x 2 metre back walls. The ethos of the fair is self-representation. Therefore artists need to be present for the duration of the fair; they need to hang, manage and de-install their work. Exhibitors are provided with invitations and complimentary tickets to give to their network of buyers, friends and family. Check the Exhibitor FAQs on our website for further details.
