Outsider Art Fair — Foire de référence de l’art brut
Outsider Art Fair
Foire de référence de l’art brut
Past: October 22 → 25, 2015Les foires de l’automne à Paris Comme chaque année, Paris devient, fin octobre, le centre d’attention de tous les amateurs d’art. Une effervescence qui ne cesse de croître depuis le renouveau de la Fiac. Face à cette multiplication de foires et salons, on observe une tendance à la spécialisation, qui fait de chaque événement une promesse cohérente en phase avec l'évolution des pratiques artistiques. Outsider Art fair 2015 Au cœur d’un hôtel particulier de toute beauté, l’Outsider Art Fair se propose, cette année encore, de donner à découvrir un art libre, affranchi des codes de l’histoire.
The Outsider Art Fair’s upcoming third edition will take place during FIAC from October 22-25, 2015 at the Hotel du Duc. This new venue, a former chateau of the Duke de Morny, will accommodate 37 dealers, up from 25 the two previous years.
There are 13 new dealers for Paris. This includes three of the most esteemed galleries in the field: Carl Hammer Gallery (Chicago) is renowned for representing seminal artists like Henry Darger and Joseph Yoakum. Ricco Maresca Gallery (New York) has championed important artists such as Bill Traylor and represents the estate of Martin Ramirez. Hirschl & Adler Modern (New York), which has a long history with self-taught art, represents the estate of the critically acclaimed James Edward Deeds (a.k.a. the Electric Pencil). With the return of Cavin Morris Gallery (New York), Fleisher Ollman Gallery (Philadelphia) and Galerie du Marché (Lausanne), the third edition of OAF Paris is sure to have the broadest selection of blue-chip art brut and outsider art thus far.
The fair’s reach continues to expand internationally with new dealers that include Budapest Art Brut Galeria (Budapest), Art Naïve Gallery (Moscow), England & Co.
(London), Maroncelli 12 (Milan), Coo-ee Aboriginal Art Gallery (Sydney) and Gordan Novak (Admiral Saskatchewan) and also with the return of Atsuko Barouh (Tokyo) and Rizomi Art Brut (Turin).
OAF Paris will feature a specially curated booth of the works of 33 year-old Japanese sculptor Shinichi Sawada, whose reptilian ceramic monsters astounded visitors at the 2013 Venice Biennale, the Collection de L’art brut and London’s Wellcome Collection in recent years.
The expansion of the Paris edition of the Outsider Art Fair reinforces its reputation for presenting works by the world’s most celebrated self-taught creators along with newly discovered artists from around the globe.
Shinichi Sawada was born in 1982 in Shiga, Japan. Diagnosed as autistic, Sawada has spent the majority of his adult life living at the Ritto Nakayoshi Sagyojo, an institute for the mentally disabled, where he divides his time working in the sculpture studio and in the hospital’s bakery.
