Your average art experience might look like this: a sparse selection of art on display, out-of-budget, eerily quiet, and overall a bit underwhelming. The Other Art Fair aims to shake this up a little, and is heading to Dallas this spring. We’re talking dazzling immersive experiences, live DJ sets, interactive workshops and more. The fair encourages its visitors to step out of their comfort zone and discover art differently - an outlandish and unmissable game plan for the weekend, we think.
The Other Art Fair presented by Saatchi Art is a celebration of art in all its forms. And it has lived up to this since day one. Born in London in 2011, the Fair Founder Ryan Stanier had the vision to connect art lovers and first time buyers with undiscovered emerging artists, and has since expanded the fair to over 7 global locations including Brooklyn, Los Angeles, Chicago and Sydney, with thousands of artworks finding homes along the way.
Running May 11 - 14 at Dallas Market Hall, the Dallas edition presented by Saatchi Art will bring together the talent of over 130 emerging artists who have been busy creating new work in their studios. These artists are independent, diverse and eager to converse one on one to make connections and tell the stories behind their works and artforms. The mix of local and international artists are carefully selected by a committee of art-world experts to ensure you have an abundance of artistic styles, sizes and prices to choose from and love.
You might find yourself drink-in-hand on the buzzing Thursday Opening Night, an artwork under arm that you just landed on for under $500, surrounded by a group of friends who share your curiosity for new experiences. For more of a party atmosphere,csonidering joining in on Friday for the Friday Late experience. Think music, drinks and the best way to kick off the weekend. Alternatively, you could take advantage of the fair taking place on Mother’s Day by making plans with a mom you know. Take a Sunday stroll while opening your mind to whatever creative conversation comes your way.
