September 15, 2022

The Other Art Fair

The Other Art Fair

On September 22, 2022, The Other Art Fair Los Angeles returns to Santa Monica’s historic Barker Hangar. Presented by Saatchi Art in partnership with Bombay Sapphire, this fair combines boundary-pushing yet affordable original works from 140 independent artists with immersive installations, performances, interactive features, tattooing, and more. Here, art is for everyone.

Bombay Sapphire will provide custom cocktails all weekend; one drink token is included with each fair ticket. Let the fizz of a refreshing Bombay & Tonic ignite your senses.

Comedian, actress, singer, and artist Melissa Villaseñor joins as a special guest artist bringing exclusive new works from her latest series, Safe to Break Apart. You can also discover additional exclusive works as part of a special feature by Moonlight Arts Collective, founded by Incubus frontman and artist, Brandon Boyd. The Moonlight Arts Collective presentation at the fair will feature works by Aric Improta, Boyd, Brian Bowen Smith, Dolly Wiseman, Heart Evangelista, Jen Rosenstein, Jose Pasillas, and Sarah Rose Hyland.

Customize your very own “motif portrait” by Portrai Me; choose your next tattoo from a Los Angeles-inspired flash sheet designed by artist Siobhan; feel the music move through your body from live DJ sets curated by dublab; and lose yourself in innovative new murals by Jacqueline Valenzuela, Kelsey Griffen, Jayes Caitlin, and more.

Plus, as an exclusive to the Los Angeles fair, Saatchi Art presents Visions of the Future, an auction and exhibition showcasing some of the best up-and-coming talent within the photography NFT space, guest curated by a panel of experts, including Fair founder, Ryan Stanier.

There’s a reason why street food and LA go hand-in-hand. Treat yourself to iconic cuisine from the city’s most-loved food trucks: Dina’s Dumpling, The Plant Lab, StopBye Cafe, Arrvo Coffee, Uli’s Gelato, and more.

Whether you’re an art aficionado or art-curious, there’s something for everyone at The Other Art Fair Los Angeles, open September 22–25, 2022. General admission tickets start at $15.

Massachusetts Design Art and Technology Institute (DATMA), the non-collecting contemporary art institute, and its partners kicked off a city-wide, collaborative venture called “SHELTER 2022–23.” As part of this initiative, DATMA is issuing a National Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for a public outdoor installation on the theme of shelter. New Bedford, Massachusetts will serve as a canvas for art exploring the role of shelter within the histories, communities, and cultures of the SouthCoast region and beyond.

DATMA welcomes artists to consider subjects including but not limited to housing, the Underground Railroad, and/or immigration. Three finalist submissions will be awarded a $1,000 stipend to develop detailed proposals. The final selected work will be awarded $25,000 to cover all artists’ fees, materials, travel, and installation. DATMA will also cover all costs associated with insurance, engineering, permitting, installation equipment, marketing, and PR, as well as overall support for the final selected project. Accepted mediums include mixed media, sculpture, installation, new genres, digital media, film and video, music composition, and photography.

Applications will be accepted beginning now through November 1, 2022. The public outdoor installation will be scheduled for viewing from June 16 to October 10, 2023, at a designated area by the corner of Union Street and Route 18 in New Bedford. The juror panel will consist of Jasmyn Baird, New Bedford Economic Development Council Senior Creative Fellow & Seaport Artwalk Manager; Patrick Shearn, Creative Director & Founder of Poetic Kinetics; and Pat Coomey Thornton, DATMA’s Program Committee Chair.

This past season, DATMA presented three individual exhibitions, robust programmatic outreach, and educational workshops which examined the history, economy, and culture of the SouthCoast region rooted in the value of shelter with topics including today’s housing crisis, the Underground Railroad that harbored Black Americans from slavery, the 9,100-foot-long hurricane barrier protecting the harbor of the nation’s most lucrative fishing port, and more.

Works by Do Ho Suh from Seoul, South Korea, Rael San Fratello from Los Angeles, California, and Abeer Seikaly from Jordan have already been presented. In partnership with the New Bedford Historical Society, DATMA also presented “Safe Station,” the story of New Bedford’s unique history in opposition to slavery through the lens of local artists including Fitzcarmel LaMarre, Alison Wells, and students from Our Sisters’ School. In addition, DATMA showcased rare historical photos documenting the critical New Bedford Hurricane Protection Barrier landmark sheltering the city from natural disasters.

Shop Limited-Edition Prints of Mia Bergeron’s Imaginative Works from Sebastian Foster

May 23, 2022

Sebastian Foster

“Stop Running”

Austin-based gallery and print studio Sebastian Foster has a new addition to its roster, Tennessee-based artist Mia Bergeron. To celebrate her joining the gallery, they’re releasing a collection of limited-edition prints of the artist’s dreamlike, dualistic works.

A classically trained oil painter, Bergeron uses modern techniques and concepts to create layered pieces. She often oscillates between the fictitious and the observed, blending the realities of the physical world with the fanciful and imaginative. Through phantasmic figures and mundane domesticity turned eerie, Bergeron explores seemingly disparate sentiments within a single work, whether through the contrasts between curiosity and loss, longing and presence, or emptiness and saturation.

Add Bergeron’s ethereal renderings to your collection by heading to the Sebastian Foster site. The gallery also represents numerous artists previously featured on Colossal, including Grant Haffner, Jeremy Miranda, Sabine Timm, and Diana Sudyka, who have originals and prints available, as well.
