The New York Fair Announces Its 26th Edition

The 26th edition of the Outsider Art Fair – the premier event for self-taught art, art brut and outsider art – will take place from January 18 to 21, 2018 at the Metropolitan Pavilion. The fair will showcase 63 galleries, representing 35 cities from 7 countries, with 10 first -time exhibitors.

The New York fair will continue to highlight the global reach of its artists and dealers, and will include: ex-voto sculptures unique to Brazil's Afro-Indigenous-European culture at Mariposa Unusual Art; and a collection of works by self-taught artists from Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean at Indigo Arts.

Korea Art Brut and Beijing's Almost Art Project will make their OAF debuts, as will Antillean, who will present work by three Jamaican artists, each of whom use found materials to evoke shanty village life.

Drawings by New Zealand's Susan Te Kahurangi King will be the subject of a solo presentation at Chris Byrne and the sensational ceramic sculptures of Shinichi Sawada will be shown in New York for the first time at Jennifer Lauren Gallery.

The fair is pleased to welcome several new and dynamic presentations this year, including the Plains Indian Ledger Drawings from the 19th and the early 20th century at Donald Ellis Gallery; Norman Brosterman's presentation of hand-painted, woven baskets attributed to Plains Indian inmates; and a series of miniature terracotta figurines by Canadian artist Jordan Maclachlan at Marion Harris.

As always, the Outsider Art Fair will offer visitors the opportunity to see artworks from internationally acclaimed figures such as Eugene von Bruenchenhein, Minnie Evans, Bill Traylor, Martin Ramirez and Thornton Dial.
