The worldʼs foremost international marketplace for self-taught art, Outsider Art, and Art Brut: The Outsider Art Fair features 35 leading galleries from North America, Europe, Asia, and the Caribbean. More than 350 artists, ranging from the masters of Art Brut and Outsider art to recently uncovered treasures and emerging stars, are represented at the show. The exhibition includes the highest quality fine art from diverse realms of the self-taught and non-mainstream art world: original paintings, drawings, sculptures, textiles, and environments.
Many artists in the worldʼs finest art museums and institutions- including Bill Traylor, William Edmondson, Henry Darger, James Castle, Martín Ramírez, and Judith Scott,- arrived there by exposure through dealers at the Outsider Art Fair. It is the essential
venue for connoisseurs and newcomers to develop collections that focus on self-taught material and also cross over into any number of broader artistic and design contexts. The Outsider Art Fair is enhanced by educational programming and social events that draw thousands of international designers, collectors, scholars, curators, students, and artists to what can only be described as a yearly happening unlike any other art fair in the world.
