About

The Others is the only Italian fair dedicated to the international emerging art born to valorize the new creative energies.

Characterized by an innovative format - use of non-conventional venues, evening opening hours, a program of crossover events - is a unique exhibition platform: a fair and a curatorial project, a meeting point between market and cultural innovation, a place for exhibition and site speci c projects that step beyond the concept of booth to become actual exhibitions per se.

A pioneering model, which has given up the typical schemes and barriers of the most traditional art fairs to develop a more direct immediate dialogue between the artistic proposal and its understanding.

how to participate

THE OTHERS – EDITION 2017

The Others is the only fair in Italy dedicated to international emerging art, this year at its seventh edition.
It is characterized by a series of novelties aimed at strengthening its identity traits: an international fair and a curatorial project, a natural place for exhibitions and site specific projects that go beyond the concept of booth to become actual shows inspired to the leitmotiv of the year.
An exhibition platform addressing galleries, independent and non-profit spaces, collectives of artists and curators, artist-run and project spaces dedicated to the promotion of the emerging creative energies.
A cultural event unlike any others.

The Others The FairThe Others Specific
The exhibitors, hosted in the spaces and rooms of the hospital, shall show a project developed by a maximum of three artists: actual exhibitions inspired to the leitmotiv of the year. A new section for The Others 2017. A number of spaces, spread throughout the pathway of the visit, aimed at hosting site or context specific projects in a wide-ranging dialogue with the architectural features of the venue, to privilege actual contextualized thematic art projects and valorize the quality of both the production and the artistic presentation.

Committee
The artistic direction has been entrusted to a Curatorial Committee made by Bruno Barsanti, Ludovica Capobianco and Greta Scarpa, a team of young emerging curators to better interpret the languages and decipher the codes of their own generation's artistic expressions, thus opening new perspectives and proposing an avant-garde observatory on the quality international creativity of the future.

Venue
The Others shall be hosted again in the extraordinary former hospital Regina Maria Adelaide, in Lungo Dora Firenze 87, on the "rive gauche" of river Dora, a 5-minute walk from Piazza Castello. Loyal to the idea that has always characterized the show, i.e. the utilization of dismissed, non-conventional structures, the former hospital Maria Adelaide is a marvelous building, inaugurated in 1887; for a long time a traumatology excellence center, closed since April 2016.


Cultural Nomadism
The motiv selected by The Others is inspired to interpreting the contemporary cultural metamorphosis that sees individual dealing with a deep technological and communicative revolution, Concepts such as the wandering though disciplines, the taste for the contamination of genres and styles, techniques and materials, mobility, flexibility, adaptability, dynamism, cosmopolitism, technological innovation, experimentation and hybridization, mark the contemporary society, thus promoting the circulation of ideas and intellectual stimulations and generating a continuous flow of know-how, knowledge and creative contributions between cultures. To these concepts are inspired the artistic projects proposed by the exhibitors of The Others

Special Projects
The Others Stage: a daily program of performances, proposed by the exhibitors of the Fair and selected by the Curatorial Committee.
The Others Screen: a daily program of video. proposed by the exhibitors of the Fair and selected by the Curatorial Committee, are run in three dedicated projection rooms.
The Others Roundtable: some important players of the art system are invited to discuss and debate on the theme of "Cultural Nomadism".

Side program
a calendar of multiple initiatives is organized – music, dance, theater, literature, food, etc.- to investigate the newest expressive forms of creativity and to represent the different voices of contemporary arts. A form of cultural entertainment to offer the public further occasion and reasons to visit and return to The Others.
