The Outsider Art Fair has released the list of exhibitors for its upcoming 2015 edition, which will be held in New York, January 29 through February 1, at Center 548 in Chelsea.
The medium, which is described on the fair’s website “to include art made by a wide variety of art-makers who share this common denominator of raw creativity. Outsiders come from all walks of life, from all cultures, from all age groups,” has grown rapidly in recent years, with more dedicated galleries and an expanding presence at major art fairs.
But the annual Outsider Art Fair remains one of the best places to discover self-taught and otherwise outsider artists. This year 40 galleries from 23 international cities will be exhibiting, with a special exhibition curated by Jay Gorney and Anne Doran.
In anticipation of the fair, there will also be a slew of special programming happening tonight, beginning at 7 p.m., at the American Folk Art Museum. Expect a chat between artist Lizzi Bougatsos and dealer James Fuentes, music by John Zorn, and a book talk with New York politician Zephyr Teachout and Alissa Quart on Ms. Quart’s title Republic of Outsiders: The Power of Amateurs, Dreamers, and Rebels. Willem van Genk: Mind Traffic.
