If your walls are looking a little bare, The Other Art Fair, presented by Saatchi Art, has got your back. From May 2nd-5th, a curated selection of over 120 independent artists will be on show (and for sale!) at The Facility in Kensington, Melbourne.
The Other Art Fair offers the opportunity for first-time buyers (as well as art buffs and serious collectors) to dabble in the world of art, with artworks available to purchase with starting prices of $100.
The space will be enlivened with live DJ sets, event tours, hand poke tattooing with Lily Gloria (an artwork for life…), live art activations, performances and street food. And of course a fully stocked bar. Courtney Barnett will also present her ‘Tell Me How You Really Feel’ project, where she asked thousands of people to share their feelings, in an installation at the fair.
Tickets to The Other Art Fair are $20 online in advance or $30 on the door. Book early, and have an extra $10 in your pocket to go towards a print or painting for that empty spot above the couch.
