Event description

WBEZ is a media sponsor of The Other Art Fair. 

The Other Art Fair brings a fresh and dynamic atmosphere to the Chicago art scene with its much-anticipated return from April 11 to 14. This annual event promises a weekend filled with independent art, engaging interactive experiences and community-focused exhibitions.

Since its inception in 2011, The Other Art Fair has become a global phenomenon, hosting local editions in prominent cities such as London, Los Angeles, New York, Dallas, and Sydney. Presented by Saatchi Art, the fair strives to revolutionize the traditional art gallery scene, breaking down barriers and making the art marketplace accessible to both independent artists and local communities.

Featuring over 100 independent and emerging artists, each fair offers a diverse range of artworks at various price points, ensuring there’s something for everyone. Beyond the art itself, the event transforms into a vibrant neighborhood scene with live DJ performances, immersive installations, popular local food trucks and a bar that doesn’t quit. And for an added element of surprise at this year’s Chicago edition, attendees can bring in an original artwork and trade it for another piece at the Art Swap Shop. The catch? You won’t know what you’re swapping for until you get it!

The Other Art Fair Chicago takes place April 11 to 14 at Artifact Events in Ravenswood. Learn more at
