The Other Art Fair 2021
Buy art direct from Sydney's emerging and unrepresented artists, or experience larger-than-life bubble art and hand-poked tattoos at this four-day affordable art fair.
If you're staring at that blank space on your bedroom wall and feeling uninspired, fret not. The Other Art Fair returns this December. The celebrated global event returns to Sydney for the eighteenth time from December 2–5.
The fair will showcase a lively collection of emerging artists alongside wondrous art installations including a set of huge luminous bubbles in the stimulating surrounds of Barangaroo's The Cutaway.
This iteration of the fair is actually 2021's second Sydney showing, after 2020s was delayed until March this year. The creative works of more than 110 carefully chosen artists, each selected by a prominent panel of art industry experts, will be up for sale.
From the ornate to the inexpensive, The Other Art Fair offers thousands of artworks starting from as little as $100. Plus, the artists will be on-site, so you can chat with them and hear the stories behind your chosen piece.
The vast four-day event is complemented by art activations, hand-poked tattooing, workshops and immersive performances, plus street food and DJ sets. This summer edition will play host to installations The Birds by Eness and Fever Originals, and Evanescent, an ethereal display of giant bubbles that previously popped up in Brisbane as part of Curiosity Brisbane.
Make a party of it by attending on opening night ($35–40), or stop by for a general browse between Friday to Sunday — general entry tickets cost $20 online or $30 on the door.
