The Other Art Fair, presented by Saatchi Art, is recognised as the leading platform for artists to showcase and sell their work to a new generation of art buyers. Now in six cities across the world, the fair’s global expansion demonstrates the widespread demand to meet and buy direct from independent artists. Sydney’s strong art community and support for independent creators presents the perfect environment for artists to establish direct relationships with buyers. The most recent Sydney edition welcomed over 6,000 visitors, attracting representatives from numerous contemporary galleries, cultural institutions and key press. Many artists have been approached about public and private commissions, as well as post-fair sales and gallery collaborations. All of which is testament to the public’s desire for direct access to cutting edge work.

Apply online at sydney.theotherartfair.com/applications. No application fee. Stand prices vary according to stand size. All prices can be found on page 3 of the application form. For more information contact Ashleigh Basa: ashleigh.basa@theotherartfair.com
