ABOUT THE OTHERS ART FAIR
The Others is the main contemporary art fair in Italy dedicated to valorize the new creative energies. Characterized by an innovative format - use of non-conventional venues, evening opening hours, a program of multidisciplinary events - is a unique exhibition platform: a fair and a curatorial project, a meeting point between art market and cultural innovation.
The 2017 edition is distinguishing itself through a set of novelties aimed at strengthening its identity features: a pioneering model that overcomes the concept of booth to host a series of projects increasingly aiming at research and experimentation.
The Others is connecting art with unconventional venues, which are part of the historical and architectural heritage, addressing Italian and international galleries, independent art spaces, curator collectives and artist-run-spaces invited to developed contextualized and thematic art projects.
More than 45 exhibitors give life to the new edition of the fair between the Main section, the new SPECIFIC section dedicated to create a fully new pathway of site and context specificprojects, and a number of Special Projects purposely conceived for The Others.
A surprising program of art performance, dance, theatre and music, four young exceptional chefs alternating in the gourmet restaurant, a selection of high-quality street food will accompany the artistic offer.
