Your average art fair experience might look like this: a sparse selection of art on display, out of budget, eerily quiet, and overall a bit underwhelming. The Other Art Fair aims to shake this up and is heading to Dallas this May. We’re talking dazzling immersive experiences, live DJ sets, interactive workshops, and more. The fair encourages visitors to step out of their comfort zones and discover art differently—an outlandish and unmissable game plan for the weekend.

The Other Art Fair presented by Saatchi Art is a celebration of art in all its forms. Born in London in 2011, fair founder Ryan Stanier had the vision to connect art lovers and first-time buyers with undiscovered emerging artists. Since then, the fair has expanded to over seven global locations including Brooklyn, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Sydney, with thousands of artworks finding homes along the way.


Running May 11 to 14 at Dallas Market Hall, the Dallas edition will bring together the talent of more than 130 emerging artists who have been busy creating new work in their studios. The mix of local and international artists is carefully selected by a committee of art world experts to ensure you have an abundance of artistic styles, sizes, and prices to choose from and love.

You might find yourself drink in hand on the buzzing Thursday Opening Night, an artwork under your arm that you just landed for under $500, surrounded by a group of friends who share your curiosity for new experiences. For more of a party atmosphere, consider joining the Friday Late experience. Think music, drinks, and the best way to kick off the weekend. Alternatively, you could take advantage of the fair taking place on Mother’s Day by making plans with a mom you know. Take a Sunday stroll while opening your mind to whatever creative conversation comes your way.

Thousands of artworks from game-changing independent artists move, excite, and energize viewers all under one roof. Each fair has brand-new guest artists, features, installations, and encounters. Come again for a familiar yet different experience. Art that is boundary-pushing yet always affordable—whatever your vibe, you’re invited.
