The Outsider Art Fair - under new ownership and at a new location in New York, previews on Thursday January 31. The Fair will then be open on Friday until Sunday.
New owner Andrew Edlin formed Wide Open Arts to purchase the Fair and feels that the move of location to Chelsea will ‘place the Outsider Art Fair in the middle of the mainstream contemporary art world.'
Quality galleries such as St Etienne, Carl Hammer and Ricco Maresca will be returning this year. A vetting committee has also been established consisting of Shari Cavin, Andrew Edlin, Carl Hammer, Jane Kallir, Frank Maresca and Randall Morris.
