“Other Places Art Fair (OPAF) returns to the Angels Gate Cultural Center on the grassy hills above the San Pedro harbor for the fourth iteration of this annual alternative art fair. Based around a five-point manifesto that includes the dictum, “We believe in a distribution of ideas as capital,” OPAF was founded with the goal of showcasing independent, artist-run, and unconventional spaces that exist outside of traditional gallery networks. This year’s edition is the biggest yet, featuring 50 participants from across the US and Mexico, as well as a designated performance are and live screen printing by Calimucho Screen Printing on Saturday. The weekend will overlap with the final days of Multiples at the Angels Gate Cultural Center, which will also be hosting a used book sale.”
