Other Criteria at Art Cat Boot Fair 2017
2017 is the year the Art Car boot fair gets a re-boot with our theme The Original. The fair began in 2004 with the intention of gently kicking against the increasing commercialisation of the postSaatchi /Frieze London art market back then and creating a more anarchic marketplace where like-minded artists could have some fun with their work, try out some new ideas and barter directly with their audience. It has taken place in a car park just off Brick Lane since 2004 and in that time, has featured literally hundreds of artists from Turner Prize winners to students, kids and lately the cream of the urban art scene. 2017 is the year the boot fair gets a re-boot with a fabulous new venue right in the heart of Vauxhall’s new gallery district, flanked by Newport Street Gallery and Beaconsfield with Cabinet Gallery and Gasworks down the road.
Expect lots of serious art bargains as always, boots of originals, every artist listed will be present, plus there will be masses of frivolous goings-on, less endless ‘limited editions’ and more of the art world really letting its hair down and trying out new things for an engaged, fun and art-loving crowd.
In collaboration with Newport Street Gallery, Other Criteria will host a selection of artists at The Art Car Boot Fair, selling unique works and holding book signings throughout the day. Including Harland Miller, Mustafa Hulusi, Helen Beard, Phillip Allen, Marcus Harvey & Rachel Howard.
