As the 2015 Outsider Art Fair in New York has just drawn to a close, I thought I would bring together some reviews that I have seen circulating. There’s a whole mix and once again the whole question of who is an insider and who is an outsider is bought to the surface … will we ever get to the bottom of it? There’s also still lots of negativity from critics surrounding this field of art, who clearly don’t understand it, and are negative just to hide it. One day lessons will be learnt …
Just as a side, an artist I work with called Manuel Bonifacio had his work shown on the Henry Boxer Gallery stand, which was a first for the artist and a first for the project I work for too, Outside In. Such positive news and a step in the right direction!
