Over 140 artists will take over the iconic Truman Brewery from Thursday, March 14, to Sunday, March 17, for the 34th edition of The Other Art Fair, presented by Saatchi Art.

With an exciting new programme of events including guest exhibitions, site-specific installations, engaging workshops and curated projects addressing the fair’s global 2019 Greener Future theme, the fair offers a dynamic and immersive presentation of some of the most exciting and adventurous emerging artists from around the world.

In 2019 The Other Art Fair is setting itself the challenge of creating a Greener Future and all twelve of the fair’s global editions this year are to focus on issues of sustainability in a special programme curated by arts broadcaster and Soho House Head of Collections Kate Bryan.

Highlights will include Upcycle, a unique initiative, allowing visitors the chance to have old artworks reworked for a nominal fee. Visitors to the fair are encouraged to bring an unwanted print, an unloved old artwork or a piece resigned to the junk-pile for an established artist to ‘upcycle’.

East London and West Essex Guardian Series:

The fair will have a permanent Feedback Wall which will be designed by a local artist and will allow visitors to leave ideas and suggestions to further the cause.

Beccy McCray will present The Full Circle, a playful installation artwork that uses tens of thousands of reclaimed ‘hole-punches’ to simulate snow. This physically immersive work is a reflection on consumption and the vast amount of waste generated over the festive season.

Visitors will step into the 16th London edition of the fair through a vibrant entrance installation by Australian born, Bristol-based illustrator Anna Higgie in her signature “cutouts” style, comprising of colourful plants, shapes and creatures. Anna will also be selling prints and illustrations.

Unmissable is a unique exhibition of portraits by emerging and established artists that depict the faces of missing persons to mark the 25th anniversary of the Missing People charity. The exhibition is curated by Ben Moore, whose brother Tom has been missing since 2003.

The Illustration Corner will see an emerging illustrator host a daily interactive drop-in project which visitors can participate in for free. Participating artists Charlotte Ager, Rachel Hillis, Benjamin Phillips and Erin Aniker.

East London and West Essex Guardian Series:

One of the highlights of The Illustration Corner is a ‘Protest & Power’ poster workshop led by London-based illustrator Erin Aniker, who will be encouraging you to create and take home your own feminist poster design.

Rebecca Mason’s Neon Health Service (NHS) Department of Light Therapy returns to The Other Art Fair with The Sorry Stall. Offering visitors the chance to apologise for mistakes and regrets - this is the time to recognise that apologising is not a sign of weakness but rather an act of kindness.

March’s featured Guest Artist is Los Angeles-based Gary Baseman who will present an immersive experience called The Purr Room where Baseman shares the healing power of his pet cat Blackie’s purr through an experiential art installation.

In a world where perhaps nothing is how it first seems, Creative Giants will present Analogue/Digital, an immersive installation arena in the fair, showcasing artists at the forefront of the UK’s contemporary art scene, across all media, that comfortably inhabit the analogue-digital space.

Alongside a host of interactive performances, the fair offers free kids activities, Saatchi Art guided tours, live music throughout the weekend from Soho Radio, Hand Poke tattoos by Brazilian artist Nara Ishikawa, plus a lively bar and a superb on-site Island Poke restaurant.
