Whether you’re at the age where you know your tastes well enough to dip the toe into buying real art, or you just like to discover cool people doing cool things first, The Other Art Fair is the one showcase you can’t miss. Coming to Sydney from 11-14 May at The Cutaway at Barangaroo Reserve, you’ll have the chance to find art that is for everyone. We promise, at The Other Art Fair, there’s no haughty ‘who you know’ vibes.


With over 130 artists, unforgettable art experiences and a few surprises, The Other Art Fair continues its mission to reframe art and how it’s enjoyed: offering a fair that’s inclusive, evocative and inspiring, with a vibrant program filled with features, workshops, immersive installations, DJs – and of course a fully stocked bar.

“With a program that is diverse and jam-packed, there is truly something for everyone,” says Luke
Potkin, Fair Director. Highlights Sydney-based Illustrator and graphic artist Aley Wild and her Illicit Illustrations, and thought-provoking works such as ‘Just Curious’ by young performance artists with disabilities.

Things not to miss:

Illicit Illustrations with Aley Wild: Come visit Aley during the fair and strike a pose with your object of choice and Aley will create for you your very own slightly-naughty nude to take away with you.


‘Just Curious’ – featured performance artwork: The Other Art Fair debuts ‘Just Curious’, a brand new performance and installation work created by young artists with disabilities, in partnership with Together2 Youth Theatre. The work will give visitors the opportunity to see through the eyes of young people with physical, social or behavioural differences and experience what it’s like to exist in often inaccessible public spaces and be subject to the constant gaze of the public. This is done by manipulating performance, movement, soundscapes and digital graphics.

frankie magazine x Studio Flos Paper Cut Art Workshop: Illustrator and paper artist wizard, Claire Cassidy from Studio Flos will guide you through your very own paper creation to take home. You can also get a frankie tote bag filled with treats worth $70! Workshops are priced at $30 and can be purchased in advance or on-the-door (first come, first served). Workshop session times: Friday 12 May: 7-9pm, Saturday 13 May: 3-5pm and Sunday 14 May: 12-2pm.

New Futures in Partnership with Ovolo Hotels: We congratulate our winners: Quirky
Bones and Elliot Guerissi-Watson. The artists will be debuting their works at the fair and
will then work with Ovolo Woolloomooloo Hotel in selecting a piece to go on display at their
hotel, alongside some specially curated ‘meet the artists’ events and activations.
