The artist-led NotFair art fair will welcome its 11th iteration with co-curators Darren Tanny Tan and Linsey Gosper under the title, ‘Alchemy’.

Alternative art fairs have gained their fair share of popularity in the past decade or so. Often housed in unconventional settings that diverge from the standard booth model, these fairs aim to platform underrepresented artists with a strong curatorial focus, while giving art lovers the opportunity to financially support bold, experimental work.

The SPRING/BREAK Art Show in New York is one example, while in Melbourne, the biennial NotFair returns this December for its 11th iteration. This year, NotFair founders Sam Leach, Tony Lloyd and Ash Crawford have handed the reins to artists and NotFair alumni, Darren Tanny Tan and Linsey Gosper.
