The Other Art Fair LA – September 5-8, 2019

WestEdge is thrilled to partner again with Saatchi Art for their fourth Los Angeles edition of The Other Art Fair hosted at the Barket Hanger in Santa Monica from September 5-8. 

The event will highlight over 140 independent and emerging artists through a variety of works including photography, painting, and sculpture. The Other Art Fair LA has partnered with BOMBAY SAPPHIRE Gin this year, so you can expect some delicious cocktails paired with workshops taught local creatives. 

“The Other Art Fair was founded with a primary goal of supporting up-and-coming independent artists, and we’re excited to introduce a new round of top emerging talent in Los Angeles,” said Ryan Stanier, founder of The Other Art Fair. “We’ve found that visitors really enjoy the whole experience of discovering new artists, meeting them in person and connecting with their work. In partnership with BOMBAY SAPPHIRE gin, we’re excited to help make creativity accessible and inclusive to all. The featured workshops and activities will be a compelling addition to the Los Angeles Fair’s fourth edition.” 

The Other Art Fair Los Angeles will kick off on Thursday, September 5 with a Private View party where you can catch a hands-on session with The Institute for Art and Olfaction founder Saskia Wilson-Brown exploring the potential of scent as part of creative practice. 

The Saatchi Art Talks Program, led by Saatchi Art’s Chief Curator and Selection Committee member Rebecca Wilson, is an engaging speaker series where artists, collectors, and cultural influencers will gather to discuss a range of topics relating to the emerging art scene.

The Other Art Fair LA- October 25-28

WestEdge is pleased to be a partner of Saatchi Art’s THE OTHER ART FAIR LOS ANGELES which opens this evening and runs through Sunday at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica.

We’re just off the heels of WestEdge but looking forward to taking in The Other Art Fair as visitors this weekend. The event  highlights include an immersive installation by guest artist Gary Baseman and special all-female art exhibition “31 Women” curated by Soho House’s Kate Bryan.

Saatchi Art’s The Other Art Fair, a leading international art fair championing emerging and independent contemporary artists, returns October 25-28 at the Santa Monica Barker Hangar, where 130 artists from around the world will showcase their works alongside exclusive new artwork by Guest Artist Gary Baseman and a special all-women exhibition entitled 31 Women.

“The Other Art Fair is non-elitist, fun, democratic and fosters a genuine connection between the public and the artists exhibiting,” said Kate Bryan, arts broadcaster and global Head of Collections for Soho House.

The Other Art Fair Los Angeles will open on Thursday, October 25 with a Private View sponsored by MINI USA. Proceeds from the Private View ticket sales will support ProjectArt, The Other Art Fair Los Angeles’ official non-profit partner, an organization that transforms the nation’s public libraries into vital cultural hubs by offering year-round visual art classes for youth and providing studio spaces for emerging visual artists.
