The Other Art Fair Chicago

Created by Ryan Stanier, The Other Art Fair was initially launched in London in 2011 as a springboard for new and emerging artists. Currently, The Other Art Fair runs 8 editions in Chicago, Dallas, Brooklyn, Los Angeles, Sydney, MelbourneLondon and Toronto (launch in April 2021). The Other Art Fair Chicago, which opened in 2018, brings together 100 plus artists who are specially chosen by committee for their forward-thinking and current art. The pieces are sold directly to both seasoned and novice collectors, without the use of galleries. The artists are on hand to meet visitors and discuss their work with art lovers and buyers. With pieces starting at £100, there is thus affordable art on sale. Paintings, sculpture, performance art and photography can be expected at these informal events.

In light of global health concerns regarding COVID-19, The Other Art Fair Chicago 2020 is postponed until forthcoming dates that will be communicated soon.

The Other Art Fair Online Studios

The Other Art Fair, along with Saatchi Art, has recently launched The Online Studios. The digital platform offers exciting artworks from international emerging talents that collectors can easily discover and purchase.
