“The Virtual Edition of The Other Art Fair is a great experience, especially as a precursor to the live events. It really helped me take that extra step to understand how I wanted to present my work... Curating this virtual space allowed me to take the time to fine tune everything—including adding extra bonus material you don’t typically get to show with your work like videos of the creation process and audio commentary.” Justin W John “This was the first time I've shown my work in the Virtual Art Fair and found the experience fun, rewarding and successful. Happy I was able to participate.” Allan Gorman
