The clue is perhaps in the name, but The Other Art Fair – celebrating its 10th anniversary – seeks to turn the traditional art fair on its head. The fair – which has editions across the world, from Los Angeles to Sydney – invites the visitor to experience art differently. No conventions or elitism here. Instead, think Djs, an El Rayo<elrayotequila.com/
> tequila bar and artwork that challenges and truly excites. Presented by Saatchi Art, the four-day London fair at The Truman Brewery<www.trumanbrewery.com/
> will this year focus on championing women in art and art forms beyond the traditional, to coincide with International Women’s Day<www.internationalwomensday.com/
>. Promising a tightly-curated and distinctive programme, over 150 independent artists have been selected by a panel of industry experts to display their work. In addition, artist, curator and founding member of gal-dem<gal-dem.com/
>, Leyla Reynolds will curate the New Futures Programme which celebrates emerging talent.
