SANTA MONICA, CA.- The Other Art Fair
presents Online Studios, a new digital art experience created in partnership with global online art gallery Saatchi Art. Debuting Wednesday, April 8, Online Studios gives art lovers around the world the opportunity to discover and buy artwork from The Other Art Fairs 800+ exhibiting independent artists. Over the course of 4 weeks, Online Studios will roll out city-specific features in line with the original Spring Fair schedule. The Other Art Fair and Saatchi Art are united by a shared mission to help audiences discover artwhether in person or onlineand support independent emerging artists around the world.
With the postponement of its Spring fairs, The Other Art Fair sought alternative ways to support the independent artist community during this difficult time, leading to the creation of Online Studios. Every two weeks, The Other Art Fair will debut two new Fair editions through this online experience, where visitors can view and purchase art from The Fairs hand-selected artists from across the globe.
Our commitment to supporting the global artist community is at the core of all we do, particularly right now as so many creatives face new challenges, said Ryan Stanier, founder of The Other Art Fair. This platform creates even more opportunity for the global art buying community to discover some of the most exciting independent artists worldwide. If we cant celebrate art in person, lets create a new sense of togetherness, digitally.
Online Studios will feature exhibiting artists through dedicated programming and weekly doses of interactive content to keep the art community feeling inspired and engaged with artists. Visitors can meet new artists and experience studio tours, as well as discover thousands of artworks with prices starting at $150 USD. The Online Studios art experience kicks-off with the London and Sydney editions on April 8.
The Other Art Fair also announced the first featured Guest Artist for 2020, Noel Fielding, with more guest artist announcements and content to be released in the coming weeks.
