The Others is an international fair and exhibition project dedicated to young artists and the emerging contemporary art, “an observatory  on  the  Italian  and  international  emerging  creativity. It  celebrates  four  years  and  confirms  its propensity for experimentation and gives up any notion of certainty to explore “the wild side”, more free, difficult to define and categorize.” (press release EN)

“This year, The Others is The Wild Side and comes up as a different and cross look that runs through the present day, sharing and reflecting it. The Wild Side is not the theme but an inspiration…. The Others 2014 proposes three new sections: OtherScreen, OtherStage and OtherSound…. OtherScreen is a screening room devoted to vision, a small temporary cinema, where every day videos will alternate with films”  (2. Newsletter)
