The Other Art Fair Presented by Saatchi Art Announces Its Return to Brooklyn This Fall With Guest Artist Mike Perry


Discover Original Artworks from Local and International Artists with Special Installations and Features Exclusive to The Other Art Fair

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Oct. 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Saatchi Art’s The Other Art Fair (“The Fair”), a leading international art fair championing emerging and independent contemporary artists, will return to the Brooklyn Expo Center in Greenpoint, November 8-11. The Other Art Fair Brooklyn will showcase the work of 130+ local and international artists across a range of mediums, including sculpture, paintings, photography and more. This edition is also proud to introduce Brooklyn-based multimedia and Emmy-winning artist Mike Perry as its Guest Artist.

Unlike exhibitors of traditional art fairs, which are typically comprised of galleries representing artists, The Other Art Fair’s exhibitors are the artists themselves, giving buyers unparalleled direct access to meet artists and learn about their work firsthand.

“Brooklyn was our very first U.S. location for The Other Art Fair, and we continue to see growing support from the local arts community,” said Ryan Stanier, founder of The Other Art Fair. “As we introduce new editions, we strive to push boundaries and find new interactive ways to engage fair goers and create bespoke experiential programming that reflects our independent spirit.”

Guest Artist Mike Perry is a Brooklyn-based artist, animator, creative director, brand consultant, poet and designer, as well as the mastermind behind the animated titles of Comedy Central's hit television show, Broad City. Perry is also the creative director of the magazine Tidal, and his work has been exhibited across the globe in countries such as Germany, Australia, China, Singapore and Holland with solo shows featured in London, Tokyo, New York and Los Angeles. In support of Free Arts NYC, the official non-profit partner of The Other Art Fair Brooklyn, Perry will present a limited edition print sold exclusively onsite throughout the weekend.

The artists showcased are chosen by a panel of art world experts and tastemakers to ensure attendees have the chance to encounter works of an exceptionally high caliber. The selection committee for The Fair’s Brooklyn edition includes: Rebecca Wilson, Chief Curator and VP of Art Advisory at Saatchi Art, Liz Hopfan, Founder & Executive Director at Free Arts NYC, Steven Peterman, Co-founder/Director at Sketchbook Project, and Sara Hashim, Freelance Creative Director.

“Meeting artists in person is a meaningful way for new buyers to begin their art collecting journey,” said Rebecca Wilson, Chief Curator of Saatchi Art. “The Other Art Fair creates a relaxed environment that makes discovering and investing in art an enjoyable experience. We also have very knowledgeable curators present throughout the weekend to offer complimentary guided tours and advice on where to begin when looking for art.”

The Saatchi Art Talks Program, led by Saatchi Art’s Chief Curator and Selection Committee member Rebecca Wilson, will be hosted in the Saatchi Art Lounge at The Fair. In this engaging program, artists, collectors and cultural influencers will gather to discuss a range of topics relating to the emerging art scene and design, including a discussion on investing in art under $1,000. Proceeds from the Private View on Thursday, November 8 will support Free Arts NYC, an organization that empowers underserved youth through art and mentoring programs to develop their creativity, confidence, and skills to succeed.
