Get ready to dive headfirst into a whirlwind of creativity this spring, as The Other Art Fair returns to Sydney on 12 October 2023. 

Picture this: an art extravaganza that’s not only innovative but also thought-provoking and accessible. With over 130 incredibly talented Australian artists taking centre stage, you’ll be surrounded by a kaleidoscope of artistic expressions. But that’s not all! You’ll also have the opportunity to meet Doctor Robot, the time-travelling sensation from the year nine million, locked in an indestructible space cube. All while you enjoy DJs spinning cool tracks in the background. 

Brought to you by the art aficionados at Saatchi Art, The Other Art Fair is on a mission to redefine how you experience and enjoy art. The Other Art Fair is not just inclusive; it’s evocative, inspiring, and a good night/day out. The jam-packed program also features workshops, immersive installations and a fully stocked bar to keep your creative juices flowing.

“We’re not just ‘curating art’, we’re building a playground of boundless creativity, and I personally can’t wait for Sydneysiders to come along and play, whilst our artists boldly strut their stuff,” says Fair Director Luke Potkin.
