[dropcap style=”font-size:100px;color:#992211;”]T[/dropcap]he Other Art Fair presents Online Studios, a new digital art experience created in partnership with online art gallery Saatchi Art.
Debuting yesterday in London and Sydney, Online Studios gives art lovers around the world the opportunity to discover and buy artwork from The Other Art Fair’s 800+ exhibiting independent artists. Over the course of four weeks, Online Studios will roll out city-specific features in line with the original spring fair schedule.
“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 can’t celebrate art in person, let’s create a new sense of togetherness, digitally.”
Online Studios will feature exhibiting artists through dedicated programming and weekly doses of interactive content. Visitors can meet new artists and experience studio tours, as well as discover thousands of artworks with prices starting at $150.
The Other Art Fair also announce the first featured guest artist for 2020, Noel Fielding, with more guest artist announcements and content to be released in the coming weeks. Fielding will showcase a new collection of 10 original drawings for sale specially for Online Studios.
Additionally, The Other Art Fair will feature specialised digital and social media content including:
- Meet the Others – a weekly video series profiling exhibiting artists and exploring their background and inspiration behind their artwork. The series will be broadcast on IGTV and YouTube
- The Other Creative Challenge – a bi-weekly Instagram art challenge presented by The Other Art Fair’s global network of artists to spark creativity with at-home art projects
- Inside the Studio – The Other Art Fair directors will participate in live discussions with exhibiting artists for Q&As and virtual tours of artist studios on Instagram and Facebook Live
