SANTA MONICA, Calif., May 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Other Art Fair, a leading artist fair for discovering emerging artists, today announced the return of its in-person fairs. The first 2021 in-real-life (IRL) fair was hosted this past March in Sydney, Australia, and saw record-breaking onsite visitor numbers and onsite sales -- highlighted by positive consumer sentiment toward safely returning to IRL events. The Other Art Fair remains committed to the safety and wellbeing of its artists and fair attendees and will be executing new safety precautions in accordance with local health guidelines to ensure visitors and artists feel comfortable within the fair environment. This will include a timed ticketing system to limit capacity, enhanced cleanliness protocols and contactless payments. The U.S. schedule will begin in June 2021 with the Los Angeles edition.

As The Other Art Fair welcomes back its live fairs, the Virtual Editions will continue as an extension of the IRL fair experience, expanding each local event's reach to a global audience.

The Other Art Fair's Summer 2021 In-Person Fair Schedule:

Los Angeles:  June 24-27
London: July 1-4
Brooklyn: July 22-25

"We are pleased to announce our summer live fair schedule, reuniting our dedicated artists and visitors who are eager to reconnect in-person," said Ryan Stanier, founder of The Other Art Fair. "The programming for events this year will be unlike any before, with innovative activations and new local partners, bringing to life the energy and community our visitors and artists have come to expect from The Other Art Fair, while continuing to launch immersive new programming through our virtual reality platform."

Added Sean Moriarty, CEO of Leaf Group, "The Other Art Fair has been a beacon for both independent artists and art lovers alike to connect in unique and highly experiential ways. We're thrilled to be reintroducing in-real-life events while also leveraging the exciting new VR platform to continue to drive innovation in the art fair space."
