At The Other Art Fair May 3–6, More Than Half the Artists Are Women

Street art advertising The Other Art Fair on Franklin Street

The street art doesn’t lie: The Other Art Fair is returning to Brooklyn, popping up May 3–6 at the Brooklyn Expo Center (72 Noble Street) in Greenpoint. This is the third edition of this Other Art Fair, New York’s leading market for a new generation of art buyers that runs biannually in the spring and fall. 130 artists will be featured this spring, and nearly 60% of them are women.

Presented by Saatchi Art, The Other Art Fair showcases talented independent and emerging artists, each hand picked by a committee of art world experts. (Unsurprisingly, the event series has a pretty hot Instagram.) Art lovers can visit the fair with confidence that they are buying from the very best and most promising emerging artists in a unique and immersive experience that Time Out has called, “a festival for discovering mind-blowing work by emerging artists.”

In addition to showcasing the best of new painting, photography, sculpture, and light installations by 130 emerging and unrepresented local and international artists (complete roster here, with the artists’ work priced from $250-$5,000), the fair will be abuzz with provocative programming like local guest DJs to keep things at full throttle; mystery tattoos inked by artist Scott Campbell (whose clients include Robert Downey, Jr. Penelope Cruz, and Sting); portrait sketching by Amber Vittoria; a tutorial on how to invest in art under $1000 with tours led by the Saatchi Art curatorial team; and sustenance from Maman Cafe and the Van Leeuwen Mobile ice cream truck parked out front.
Tattoo artist Scott Campbell will be present at next week’s Fair

Some 30 artists from Brooklyn will showcase their works in person including Jean Louis Frenk, who works in unusual ceramics; Pratt graduate Maria Bouget, who creates in light installations; Arthur Lugauskas, who will debut a 6-canvas-wide New York skyline; and photo collagist Karen Nielsen.

You can enter to win a free tattoo here, and tickets to the Fair itself range from $13.50 to $30 depending on when you go. Full Fair hours are below. Happy touring, art viewing, and art hunting!

Fair Hours:
Private View, Thursday May 36–10 PM
Friday May 43–10 PM
Saturday May 512–9 PM
Sunday May 611AM–6 PM
