Founded in New York in 1993, the Outsider Art Fair is the original art fair concentrating specifically on self-taught art created outside the mainstream, presenting works by acknowledged masters including James Castle, Aloïse Corbaz, Henry Darger, Thornton Dial, William Edmondson, Martín Ramírez, Judith Scott, Bill Traylor and Adolf Wölfli, as well as contemporary figures like M’onma, Susan Te Kahurangi King, Dan Miller 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, the Outsider Art Fair was acquired by Wide Open Arts, a company formed by New York gallerist Andrew Edlin. With its debut edition in 2013 the Fair established guest curatorial projects and the talks program. 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 for the first time in October 2013, helping to reinvigorate the city’s long tradition of recognizing and championing art brut and self-taught artists.

The Outsider Art Fair’s (OAF) list of exhibitors for the 2020 New York edition counts with new features including a redesigned floor plan and revamped café, three curated projects, special programs, and first-time exhibitors from Japan, India, and various U.S. cities. Participating galleries in the 28th edition of the Fair include 61 exhibitors, representing 35 cities, from 10 countries, with 10 first-time galleries.

A site-specific installation by artist and poet Frederick Weston titled Frederick Weston: Blue Bedroom Blues will be on view at Ace Hotel New York from January 15 through February 5, 2020. The exhibition is presented in conjunction with the Outsider Art Fair and is curated by Gordon Robichaux, NY. For Weston’s immersive installation, the walls of the gallery are painted entirely in the artist’s signature blue, within which he has installed a series of his intimate paper collages from 1999 and a large multi-panel artwork created specifically for the exhibition. In the center of the gallery, Weston transforms a bench with a fabric cover that suggests a bed. Weston previously lived in the Breslin, which is now the site of The Ace Hotel. Weston’s Blue Bedroom Blues brings his life and work full circle. The Blue Bedroom Ballads/Blue Bathroom Blues series is inspired by Weston’s experience living with HIV. This exhibition coincides with another that includes Weston's work, titled Souls Grown Diaspora at apexart in New York, opening January 10, curated by Sam Gordon.

The Outsider Art Fair takes place January 16-19, 2020 at the Metropolitan Pavilion (125 West 18th Street.)
