Notfair 2017

See (and buy) the works of prominent emerging visual artists in a sprawling factory setting.

Created in 2010 as an alternative to the Melbourne Art Fair, Notfair is returning in November with an impressive 50-artist-strong lineup. The fair, now in its fifth iteration, was founded to link some of the country's most overlooked and unknown artists to gallery directors, critics, curators and art-loving members of the public. So far, it has been an undeniable success; many of the fair's past artists have featured in major exhibitions and gained commercial representation.

The fair's original founders, artists Tony Lloyd and Sam Leach and writer Ashley Crawford, have curated this year's event. It features artists working in experimental installation, sculpture, painting and many more forms. Roam through the Windsor warehouse and purchase cutting-edge art — you may even get to rub shoulders with some leading visual artists while you're at it.

Notfair runs from November 11–19 and admission is free. See below for opening hours.
