Fluid in definition, bonded by an intention to operate in other places outside the traditional commercial art gallery system, Other Places art fair (OPaf) 2018 features twenty-four participants presenting site-specific booths encapsulating their projects and programming. Representing this growing movement of art project spaces, OPaf 2018 provides a custom art fair structure designed specifically for these unconventional projects.

OPaf has selected Battery Leary-Meriam as the ideal setting for our inaugural art fair. In constant transformation since 1916, the site is a decommissioned U.S Army battery overlooking the Pacific Ocean in San Pedro currently overseen by Angels Gate Cultural Center. Originally constructed as a single two-gun emplacement, the battery was converted into a defense command post and subsequently a NIKE missile launch site until 1976.
