Angelenos may finally be recovered from the recent deluge of art fairs — where homegrown veteran ALAC was joined by Frieze, Felix, and Spring/Break — but fair season isn’t over yet. This weekend, over 40 artist-run spaces, experimental arts organizations, and independent galleries will set up shop in a decommissioned gun battery at Fort MacArthur in San Pedro for the second annual Other Places Art Fair. Nestled into a corner of Angels Gate Park, the site offers bucolic green spaces and harbor vistas mixed with abandoned military architecture coated in decades of graffiti — a perfect setting for this gathering of untraditional and hard-to-categorize venues.
Showcasing primarily participants from Southern California, including Gas.gallery, Leroy’s Happy Place, Scranch, and ECF Art Centers, this year’s lineup will also include Good Weather from Arkansas, Ekkisens Art Space from Iceland, and DIS-PLAY from Germany. In addition to booths and site-specific installations, a performance series will take place throughout the weekend including a plein air painting session with the Roofless Painters, an interactive performance by Pippa Garner presented by California Carts, and a closing flag lowering ceremony from Harborview and Pole with a reading by Steve Kado.
When: Saturday, March 16–Sunday, March 17, 12–5pm daily ($5 donation / free for students with ID. Free parking. Family and pet friendly.)
Where: Battery Leary-Merriam / Angels Gate Park (3601 S Gaffey St, San Pedro, California)
