The Other Art Fair is currently the UK’s largest artist led fair. It is a tangible gateway for emerging artists in the UK to gain exposure and widespread success. Due to its mammoth success overseas, The Other Art Fair is debuting in Australia on the 10-13th of September this year, bringing with it the same art fervour and excitement from London to Sydney!
Emilya Colliver, Art Pharmacy’s own wonder woman, will be directing the fair with the fabulous Zoe Paulsen as Fair Manager.
"Running over four days, the fair provides an accessible place to purchase affordable art, directly from 80 selected artists. With an accomplished selection committee on board, we can guarantee that a variety of quality works, spanning all mediums, will be on display." - The Other Art Fair
"The Other Art Fair is unique in its approach to supporting artists, providing a platform where our artists can further cultivate their professional careers. In addition to the four days at the fair, we support them throughout the year by offering free seminars, workshops and lectures, all given by industry leaders. We also give them the opportunity to sell online, as well as open up doors for individuals to connect with companies and associations." - The Other Art Fair
Emilya’s passion for art and bringing unrepresented artists into the spotlight has been the key motivation to running The Other Art Fair. Being director of The Other Art Fair is a large role and is one that’s bigger than Emilya has tackled before; but being a fond believer in “art for all”; it is a challenge that she has taken on whole-heartedly.
"Directing the Fair has meant dealing in a plethora of areas like; programming, managing marketing and operations and assuring the wellbeing of artists." - Emilya
Her role extends to the liaisons of all staff, organising DJ’s and performance art and making sure The Other Art Fair unfolds brilliantly. The Other Art Fair in many ways is like an extension of Art Pharmacy's broader ideals of providing exciting, affordable and original artworks by Australian artists. It offers an environment that gives emerging Australian artists access to meeting the public, press and collectors and being at the heart of interaction and dialogue.
