The first fair was launched in November 2011 and showcased the work of 80 of the UK’s best unrepresented artists. Hosted at the Bargehouse on the South Bank, it was a great success, attracting 4,300 visitors over three days. As the doors closed on the last day, plans were already underway for a second fair. In May 2012 The Other Art Fair moved to Ambika P3 in Marylebone, in the hope of making the experiences of the inaugural fair even better. After an overwhelming response of over 400 applications from artists, the selection committee chose the best 90 to show their work, to an audience that reached just over 7,000. The fantastic sales and opportunities at the May fair, now see The Other Art Fair returning to Ambika P3 in November’12.
