Held for the first time in the fair's spectacular new home of The Cutaway at Barangaroo, The Other Art Fair aims to make art accessible for everyone, with thousands of artworks starting from $100!
However, this is not your average art fair! In addition to showcasing the works of 130 emerging and independent artists, The Other Art Fair Sydney also presents a dynamic four-day public program featuring live tattooing on-site, a physics engine-equipped Light Seesaw, workshops from MakerSpace & Co, art tours by Saatchi Art's team of curators, a live DJ set, activities for kids and delicious street food.
This is a unique opportunity to discover and buy contemporary art in an exciting and engaging atmosphere. This year, visitors will be met by Extract of Red Air, an inflatable art collaboration between Goldberg Aberline Studio and Yindjibarndi artists Sharon and Kaye Warrie.
Other highlights include:
Throughout the fair, food from some of Sydney's favourite venues will be on offer, including feel-good Vietnamese favourites from Bar Pho, Lambda - Sydney's hottest Food Truck, Broomfield's Pie Co hand-crafted pies and delicious coffee from Pull n Shots. The Other Art Fair bar will also be pouring wines, beers and plenty of other drinks for thirsty art lovers.
Musicland will host a lineup of DJs to perform during the fair, while after hours at Friday Late, visitors can take over as DJs themselves with The Mash Machine's intuitive interface, which allows up to four people at one time to create music just by placing and moving blocks.
Kids are welcome visitors to the fair, with FREE entry for children under 16 and a Kids Create area, where they can unleash their artistic flair and participate in creative art activities and crafty challenges suitable for all ages.
