Brooklyn: Art Upcycle
Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.
As part of our Greener Futures initiative, Kate Bryan, Broadcaster and Head of Collections at Soho House has curated a daily program of artists working live at the Fair. The artists will be available to visitors to ‘Upcycle’ their art. Encouraged to bring an unwanted print, an unloved old painting, their own artwork or a tired piece resigned to the junkpile, the public can pay $100 to have their artwork born again. Find out who will be upcycling work at The Other Art Fair Brooklyn this Spring.

Saturday, May 4: Antoinette Wysocki 6-8 PM
Abstract painter Antoinette plays a precarious balancing act in her layered work between analytical painting and random actions and chance. Expect her to take her intuitive eye to your tired old artwork and allow you to see it again through her fresh eyes.

Alexandre’s practice is restless and discursive, encompassing a wide range of media. His work often takes unexpected detours so expect the unexpected as he marshals your unloved artwork into a weird and wonderful new terrain.
