NotFair: Radical Shifts for Unruly Art Fair

NotFair, Australia’s perpetually unruly alternative art fair, is delighted to announce a new curatorial team for their upcoming 2023 event.

NotFair was founded in 2010 by artists Sam Leach and Tony Lloyd and writer Ashley Crawford as a satellite event to the Melbourne Art Fair in order to showcase independent artists who often do not fit the commercial mould and are overlooked and under-recognized. The initial grass roots event has grown into a well-known and popular event on the Australian arts calendar. Now in its 13th year NotFair has launched many artists into successful careers, while the nature of the event is still unchanged: NotFair does things differently.

Thus Leach, Lloyd and Crawford have resigned as curators in order to allow fresh blood to take the reigns, with Darren Tanny Tan and Linsey Gosper as the new curators of @notfair_artfair 2023. Dates, artists and location to be announced shortly.

“After 13 years and a number of NotFair events it seemed time to allow a new generation to take over,” said the original team in a joint statement. “It has always been NotFair’s intention to allow new opportunities, new talent and new ideas. That applies to the curatorial approach alongside the art and artists. We’re delighted to have Darren and Linsey take over from us!”
