Saatchi Artwork’s different Brooklyn artwork honest returns this spring with a “greener” perspective NYSE: LEAF
SANTA MONICA, Calif., March 18, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Saatchi Art’s The Other Art Fair, a premier international fair for independent artists, returns to Brooklyn May 2-5. The Other Art Fair builds on previous Brooklyn fairs over the past two years and features over 130 emerging artists at the Brooklyn Expo Center. Cristina Mittermeier, photographer and co-founder of SeaLegacy, will act as guest artist for this issue. In addition, the Other Art Fair will include its Greener Future program for 2019 with special initiatives to support sustainability and protect the environment.
“I founded The Other Art Fair to support unrepresented artists. Since then we’ve sold over 20,000 works of art, welcomed over 200,000 visitors and worked with more than 3,000 artists from over 20 countries, ”said Other Art Fair founder Ryan Stanier. “As we continue to expand our presence and add more cities to our roster, we are taking steps to be fully sustainable at all of our shows. In 2019 we will be integrating an Upcycle art program and reusable options for the fair’s bar because in order to create art we need a healthy world in which we can be inspired and in which we can live. “
The artists featured at the show are selected by a group of influential experts and taste makers in the art world to ensure that show visitors are presented with the most talented emerging artists of Saatchi Art. The selection committee for the spring 2019 edition of the Brooklyn Fair consists of: Rebecca Wilson (Chief Curator, Saatchi Art), Lucien Zayan (Founder, The Invisible Dog Art Center), Billy Gerard Frank (Founder, Nova Frontier Film Festival), Deva Pardue (Creative Director, The Wing), Rolf Arne Leer (Founder, Quoted Magazine) and Zoe Christensen (Fine Art Agent and Curator, SeaLegacy.org).
“With the fair’s increasing reputation and visibility, we’re delighted to be able to welcome so many artists to the fair for the first time. In Brooklyn, our audience can discover the works of outstanding emerging artists from 16 countries from Chile to the Netherlands, in addition to some of the most popular artists who regularly exhibit at the fair, ”said Rebecca Wilson, Saatchi’s Art Chief Curator. “We are also very happy that 60% of the artists who show their work are women.”
Guest artist Cristina Mittermeier is a Mexican born and raised photographer and marine biologist. Her work as a photographer, speaker, and explorer has been featured in hundreds of publications, most recently in National Geographic. Mittermeier is also the founder of SeaLegacy, a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting the ocean. SeaLegacy will be the official charity partner of Other Art Fair Brooklyn, helping to promote the fair’s Greener Future initiative with special features and on-site promotions.
