Paris’s Outsider Art Fair Announces Participating Galleries

2N2A4209 copyToday, the Outsider Art Fair announced the participating galleries for this year’s Paris edition.

The fair will take place at the Hôtel du Duc in Paris, and run from October 20-23 the same time as the Foire Internationale d’Art Contemporain. It will feature 38 galleries from around the world, 15 of which are new exhibitors.

Founded in New York 1993, the Outsider Art Fair is the only international fair devoted entirely to outsider art—that is, self-taught artists outside of the institutional “art world.” In 2012, it was purchased by Wide Open Arts, a company founded by New York-based art dealer Andrew Edlin. The next year it relocated to Chelsea and opened a second fair in Paris. The next New York edition of the fair, celebrating its 25th anniversary, opens three months after the Paris fair, early in 2017.
