The Other Art FairFor the fifth edition of The Other Art Fair the exhibition moves to a new venue: The Old Truman Brewery sharing the space with Moniker Art Fair. What's more, the fair will take place between 17th and 20th October 2013 - Frieze week, the busiest week in the UK's art calendar. So, a new venue but the original ethos remains the same: this is an art fair where unrepresented artists can showcase their pieces, and visitors can take something home without breaking the bank. Don't be mistaken though, you won't be presented with any old paintings; all the artists have been chosen specially by a selection of committee experts. In the past they have included iconic British light artist Chris Levine and Dazed & Confused editor Francesca Gavin. With more than one thousand pieces starting at £100 as well as many arty events such as curated walks and live music, this is more of an art experience than an art fair. In its new location, The Other Art Fair promises 100 artists and 1000s of artworks and brand new features, to be revealed soon.

 

About The Old Truman Brewery

Popular with the Shoreditch crowd on the weekends, The Old Truman Brewery houses more than 200 small, creative businesses, a bar and several areas for hire. It encompasses 19 buildings, linked by a series of alleyways and courtyards, but the main area - the Boiler House - is easily identified by its 49-metre chimneystack with 'Truman' written up the side.
