HAND POKE TATTOOS

The Brooklyn based Rosa 'Bluestone Babe' Perr takes on The Other Art Fair Los Angeles this March, hand poke tattooing her beautiful and unique designs onto visitors on a first come, first serve basis. 

Rosa is a New York City native raised by artists, teachers, and activists. Bluestone, Rosa’s mother’s last name, is an ode to her maternal family and the feminism her mother instilled in her from a young age. Rosa loves sharing the intimate tattoo experience with clients, in particular the joy and confidence new ink can bring. Rosa has been painting since she was a tot, and the transition from paintbrush to a needle in recent years felt natural. She has fallen in love with the art of handpoke tattoos and evokes a less-is-more aesthetic. When not tattooing, you can find Rosa at or dreaming about the beach.  

THE OTHERS LIVE 

Guests will enjoy an audio curation program featuring a series of electrifying DJ sets and live radio broadcasting by Dublab presented by Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles, and Chulita Vinyl Club Los Angeles. 


Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles opened early 2014 in the historic United Artists building in Downtown LA. Built in 1927 for the maverick film studio, this ornate, storied and vibrant Los Angeles gem stands as a monument to a group of seminal American artists pushing out on their own, and anchors the Broadway Theater District's modern renaissance. Mary Pickford's love for the ornate detail and stone spires of Spanish castles and cathedrals is manifest at the theater — a true temple of the arts. The mixture of reverent awe and irreverent independence is right up our alley — this is the kind of project we dream of.


dublab is a non-profit, radio station dedicated to the growth of music, arts and culture. 

We have been broadcasting from Los Angeles since 1999. Our mission is to share freeform radio transmissions with an international audience. 

dublab’s programming has expanded to include production of art exhibits, films, events and record releases as well as affiliate stations in Germany (dublab.de), Japan (dublab.jp), and Spain (dublab.es).

WHAT ARTISTS LISTEN TO PODCAST

What Artists Listen To is an art podcast project by @piapack that hears the stories and soundtracks of female artists lives in Los Angeles. Combining the music the artists listen to with the story of their lives, the podcast serves to create a sense of connection between these individual artists working in their studios. Before the fair Pia will conduct interviews with exhibitors Monica Perez, Felicidad de Lucas, Allison Bagg, Melissa Herrington, and Amanda Flowers.  

Instagram: @WhatArtistsListenToPodcast

The podcast is on iTunes, here

The podcast will also be available to listen to at an onsite Podcast Listening Station. 

At The Other Art Fair Pia will be showing a selection of small aqua-tint etchings from her Table Talk series.  Since 2015 Pia has invited friends, family and colleagues over for dinner and video recorded the meal from above in a bird eye  – this footage is then taken to the studio and studied to create small maps of meals.

Piece by Piece, a non-profit which provides low-income and formerly homeless people free mosaic art workshops using recycled materials, will be onsite at the fair to hold a mosaic workshop.

INSTANT DREAMS POLAROID EXHIBITION

The exhibition will feature the work of Ariel Shelleg, Clare Marie Bailey, Julia Beyer, Carmen de Vos, Lisa Toboz, Josey Cary, Kristen Thys van den Audenaerde, Lukas Brinkmann, Leanne Surfleet, Ina Echternach, Anika Neese, Urizen Freaza, Marion Lanciaux, Xulong Zhang and Stefanie Schneider.  

SAATCHI ART PRESENTS "REFUSE TO BE THE MUSE"

Specially for the fair and in celebration of Women's History Month, Saatchi Art will present a pop-up exhibition of recent works by some of the many talented women artists the online gallery represents. This exhibition is presented alongside a new video featuring these women in their own words, and Saatchi Art's first-ever women-only catalogue.


From Titian’s "Venus" to Picasso’s nudes, women historically have been relegated to the role of the muse rather than celebrated as artists in their own right. Despite gaining greater exposure, they continue to struggle for equal representation in 2019: women constitute only 30% of artists represented by galleries.


At SaatchiArt.com, 54% of their best-selling artists are women. As the world’s leading online art gallery, they provide women artists with an equal platform to share their art with the global community.


The Other Art Fair is proud to join Saatchi Art in a joint effort to increase opportunities for artists traditionally excluded from the traditional art world.

FEMMEBIT VR EXPERIENCE

Femmebit (booth 116) will present virtual reality works, digital prints, and a painting that explore virtual reality worlds.

The exhibition features the artworks of Amanda Sojanov, Tara Dilloughery, Kate Parsons, and Janna Avner. Femmebit invites viewers to experience the virtual reality world of Steel Scene, the VR artwork created by Amanda Stojanov and Tara Dilloughery. Steel Scene guides the viewer through the Port of Los Angeles’s incorrigible industrial landscape. To exist within Steel Scene is to invoke feelings of mortality and complete obsoletion beneath behemoths of steel.

Femmebit's booth will represent Kate Parsons’s VR piece, Vibrant Matter (FLOAT), consisting of painterly interactions within a kaleidoscopic dreamland of layered video textures. Exhibiting the digital prints of the Replevy Series, Parsons captures the unique and sacred moments of Vibrant Matter, creating a tangible artifact of an otherwise ephemeral medium.

Responding to these works, Janna Avner presents Virtual Landscape (I), an oil painting acknowledging futurism through primitive technologies. Avner incorporates resin, refraction gradients, and holographic glitter into her piece to invoke a glowing, computer-screen like brightness. Virtual Landscape (I) provides the inverse possibility that computer screens could be understood and formally appreciated as paintings. FEMMEBIT provides immersive digital media festivals that explore the present life and historic past of video, virtual reality and augmented reality art created by women.
