Like No Other
In October each year for two years’ running now, Sydney has hosted a grand scale art exhibition like no other. The Other Art Fair of Sydney is a proud part of a global movement that’s all about exposure for some of Australia’s best unrepresented artists. The passion of the people behind The Other Art Fair can be felt in the room, as a band of artists, backed by a selection committee, lead this event with an aim to “Make Art Fair”. Rejecting the standard elitist nature of most international fairs, this fair is Artist-led. That’s why we love it so much.
The vision of Art Director, Laura Richardson, is to ‘create a more diverse sector based on the merit of artists’ work rather than their social connections, financial position, gender and so on’. Populart is with them on this one. We believe in art for everyone by anyone, and that our appreciation for art is just as unique as we are. The Other Art Fair is an opportunity to celebrate uniqueness, differences and embrace new art opportunities.
The Other Art Fairs around the globe are increasing in popularity which is a win win for our artists and our audiences. Laura Richardson invites all of us to believe in her dream of every person having at least one piece of art in their home that they love. What a delightful concept. Populart are thrilled to give you a sneak peek of some of the artists who will exhibit at the fair this year, and a few of their works that are available already.
