Call For Artists: The Other Art Fair Bristol 2016

The Other Art Fair is delighted to return to the prestigious Arnolfini for its second regional fair to be held in Bristol, 22-24 July 2016.  The Other Art Fair is the UK’s largest artist fair, attracting an audience of 14,000 art buyers, collectors, journalists and gallerists from across the UK. It provides a unique platform from which artists can independently showcase their work: to gallerists, curators, critics and collectors.

Not only about selling artworks, these three 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.

The most recent edition of the fair welcomed over 14,000 visitors and attracted representatives from over 200 leading contemporary galleries and art organisations. Many artists at the fair have been approached about public and private commissions as well as post-fair sales and gallery collaborations.

Testimonials include: "A brilliantly run fair by an exceptionally thoughtful team. This event didn't just give me sales and promises of future commissions - it gave me exposure to hundreds of my target audience. I couldn't recommend it enough and I'll be applying to take part again." Greg Harris, Bristol 2016.

Further Benefits for Exhibiting Artists include:
Pre-Fair workshop: Discussions led by fair director Ryan Stanier and fair alumni.
Profile on the online shop: enabling you to sell your work from the respected platform of The Other Art Fair 365 days a year
Additional collaborations and commissions: further external opportunities provided by the fair’s relationship with both corporate companies and art organisations

The call for artists to get involved is out now; see this page for more information, and visit this page to apply. Application deadline: Friday 22 April.

For further information contact Sophie Roberts at or 0203 805 6670.
