Price: $0–$40
See works by 109 of Australia’s most exciting young artists all in one place, with stick-and-poke tattooing on-site, nude life drawing with neon paints and UV light, complimentary illustrations and more.

How often do you get the chance to see more than a hundred of Australia’s most exciting emerging young artists in one place? Not often. Until the Other Art Fair swings into town. It’s one of the first large-scale art events in Sydney since the extended lockdown (the original 2020 fair was also postponed).

Highlights include design studio Atelier Sisu’s Evanescent, an art-chitecture piece made up of giant colour-reflecting bubbles; complimentary illustrations by Aley Wild, Georgia Frew and Harley & J; and an interactive illustration of inflatable birds called Nature Illuminated.

Visitors can enter a darkened room with a model lit up by UV light, where they’re invited to paint their own life drawing using UV paints at Neon Nudes. Plus, hand-poked tattoo artists Ink Sphinx and Nah Mate will be stick-and-poke tattooing live at the fair.

There’ll also be DJ sets throughout the event, as well as street-food vendors and a pop-up cocktail bar by Bombay Sapphire. Take an interactive cocktail quiz and the team will help you curate a cocktail based on your preferences.

Ticket prices range from $20 to $40 depending on the day. Entry is free for children under 12.
