Outsider Art Fair (OAF) returns to New York for its 29th edition, bringing for the first time a multi-locational program featuring events at venues across Manhattan, along with a virtual facet. Live and open through February 7, the self-taught- and art brut-focused fair features exhibitors from nine countries, presented through seven in-person exhibitions and an online viewing room supported by Artlogic.
Following the success of the Paris fair’s first-ever hybrid model, this edition of OAF has been curated by Gary Panter. The concept sees host galleries partnered with visiting presenters to offer a series of thematic exhibitions, on view at four spaces across the city, concurrently with a full presentation of artworks shown digitally.
Locals can expect to see exhibitions like “To Be Human: The Figure in Self-Taught Art” at Hirschl & Adler, featuring works by names like Henry Darger and James Edward Deeds; a show of more than a dozen artists at Andrew Edlin Gallery titled “Figure Out: Abstraction in Self-Taught Art; three shows on view at Shin Gallery, including a compilation of African American artists from the deep south at Shin Gallery; and Salon 94 Freemans’s showing of Aboriginal artists titled “Semiotic Terrain: Art from Australia and New Zealand.”
Virtual exhibitions include presentations like The Pardee Collection showing paintings by Emitte Hych, Pan American Projects sharing works from North, Central, and South American artists, and watercolors by the artist Mary Whitfield, shown by Phyllis Stigliano.
