London: Call For Artists

Exhibit at the 12th UK edition of The Other Art Fair.

Next Fair: 30th March – 2nd April 2017, Victoria House, London, WC1A 2QP

The Other Art Fair, presented by Saatchi Art, will return to Holborn’s Victoria House for the 12th UK edition and first fair of 2017. On 30th March – 2nd April the fair will present 130 emerging artists to gallerists, critics and general art lovers.


Continuing to grow within the art world, The Other Art Fair is recognized as the definitive place to discover exciting and emerging talent, attracting an audience of over 14,000 visitors and art buyers. Now presented by Saatchi Art, this partnership unites two of the fastest growing sectors of the international art market and emphasises the fair’s ethos of connecting art lovers directly with artists.

Not only about selling artworks, these four days enable artists to launch their work in the contemporary art world, gauge the public’s response to their pieces and meet fellow artists for potential future collaborations. The fair is wide-reaching in its audience, attracting individuals who support artistic practice in other ways: advertising agencies, designers and corporate companies looking to commission pieces.

“A great way of getting your work seen by buyers and gallerists, I’ve seen an increase in sales with each fair. The Other Art Fair has enabled me to consolidate relationships with buyers and artists, and gain a real presence in the London art world.” 

Michael Swallow, April 2016 Exhibitor

We were delighted with the success of our 14th edition in October 2016, an edition that welcomed over 14,000 visitors and attracted representatives from over 200 leading contemporary galleries and art organisations such as Tate, Sotheby’s Institute, White Cube, Christie’s, Lisson Gallery and Gagosian. Many artists have been approached about public and private commissions as well as post-fair sales and gallery collaborations. All of which is testament to London’s desire for direct access to cutting edge work.
