The Other Art Fair, London 2021, presented by Saatchi Art, is the UK’s leading artist-led fair. There are only 100+ emerging artists at the fair...artists selected by the jury for being "forward-thinking and inspiring". I'm proud to let you know that I've been honoured to be one of them!
The selection committee changes with each edition of the fair to ensure that a fresh perspective is brought to each selection process. These members of a globally significant art community set the high standard of the fair, so visitors have confidence that they're meeting the best emerging talent.
