Outsider Art Fair

Outsider Fair was first launched in New York in 1993 and is held since annually in January. It truly focuses on ‘Art Brut’ The artwork displayed is often raw, created by self taught artists, unaffected by expectations and convention. The fair runs another edition in France in October with Outsider Art Fair Paris. Both are exciting shows where collectors can pick up art rarely seen before. There is a casual atmosphere at the fair that encourage networking and nice discussions. The range of artworks exhibited is very wide and heterogeneous. Indeed, the participating galleries showcase experimental mediums, oil paint, glass, pottery and photography. Additonally, the public can enjoy a programme of art performances and talks, alongside the trade show itself.
