The Other Art Fair Returns to Brooklyn
Born in London in 2011, The Other Art Fair has expanded with local editions running in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, and Sydney. Presented by Saatchi Art in partnership with BOMBAY SAPPHIRE®, each fair typically features 100+ independent artists, live performances, DJ sets, immersive installations, food trucks, and a buzzing late-night scene.
The 2022 Brooklyn edition is one of the busiest events and a top New York show to attend in the fall. Now in its 10th year, organizers have moved the event to Agger Fish at Brooklyn Navy Yard. After years at the Brooklyn Expo Center and a detour in Maspeth last year, the event is now more accessible than ever with most major train lines and even ferries from the city going directly to the venue.
Running November 3 to 6, The Other Art Fair Brooklyn will feature 120 independent emerging artists, thousands of artworks to shop from (at nearly every price point), live DJs, food trucks, and the signature BOMBAY SAPPHIRE® bar where attendees get one free gin cocktail with admission. There are always some last-minute reveals, so don’t be surprised if there’s live tattooing or Japanese rope-tying performances on site.
There are distinctive scenes happening over all four days. Private View on Thursday night attracts post-work industry folks, collectors, and press, while the Friday late-night party brings local creatives out for some mischief at the bar. Saturdays and Sundays see everything from serious shoppers looking to fill up wall space in their new apartment to post-brunch flea marketers meandering through.
All food, entertainment, and happenings are a part of The Other Art Fair’s mission to break down traditional art world barriers and make art affordable and accessible to all. The environment fosters genuine connections between all attendees from art amateurs to seasoned collectors. The event feels more like an open house party than just another art gallery opening.
The Other Art Fair Brooklyn will take place on November 3 to 6 at Brooklyn Navy Yard. Save up to 30 percent by booking in advance. Tickets are available at theotherartfair.com.
