Calm Down at The Other Art Fair
Anxiety is an insidious evil.
Objectively, it’s just a chemical imbalance in the brain, yet few other states of mind remove one so entirely from objectivity. It can dictate huge periods of one’s life, being as stymying as it is motivational. It creates and destroys its own mental hurdles so effectively that large portions of time can pass by with a completely static person having mentally explored a thousand different realities, but physically, none of them.
Anxiety can arguably serve some kind of purpose, but the point is, it’s not something that one is able to overcome without access to heroin, the acquisition of which comes with a whole new type of paranoia. So it’s important to constantly remind yourself that though the world is, at times, threatening and full of dangers, the majority of it is petty, stupid and cartoonishly meaningless. Remind yourself of that at The Other Art Fair.
The Other Art Fair, presented by Saatchi Art, gives you the opportunity to meet a curated selection of over 110 independent artists and browse thousands of pieces to suit every budget under one roof. This is an art fair for everyone. Whether you’re a first-time art buyer, seasoned collector, curator, investor, gallery owner, art lover or anything in between, you are guaranteed to find something to add to (or start!) your collection. Plus, with performances, DJ sets, art installations and a fully-stocked bar awaiting you, The Other Art Fair has everything you need to enjoy a cultural day out in a Covid-safe environment.
Your mind may be a hell from which you can’t escape. The demons created within will always be the most terrifying, so remember that most of the demons existing outside of it aren’t crawling towards you, they’re crawling towards an abstract of a brachycephalic dog with $400 ready to burn and an aching hunger for a plate of tiny cheeses.
