About the Outsider Art Fair:
Founded in New York in 1993, the Outsider Art Fair is the original art fair concentrating specifically on self-taught art, and exhibits works by acknowledged masters, including James CastleAloïse CorbazHenry DargerThornton DialWilliam EdmondsonMartín RamírezJudith ScottBill Traylor and Adolf Wölfli, as well as contemporary figures like M’onmaSusan Te Kahurangi KingFrank Walter and George Widener. Quickly recognized for its maverick spirit, OAF played a vital role in building a passionate collecting community and broader recognition for outsider art in the contemporary art arena.
In 2012, OAF was acquired by Wide Open Arts, a company formed by gallerist Andrew Edlin. With its debut edition in 2013, the fair established the Curated Space and OAF Talks programs. The 2013 fair enjoyed rave reviews and more than tripled its previous attendance records. Propelled by this success, Wide Open Arts took the fair to Paris where it recently produced its 6th edition, helping to reinvigorate the city’s long tradition of recognizing and championing art brut and self-taught artists.
