Outsider Art Fair
Foire dédiée à l’art autodidacte, brut et outsider

Past: October 19 → 21, 2018

For its 6th Paris edition. OAF Paris will move to Atelier Richelieu, located in the 2nd Arrondissement, easily accessible from the Grand Palais. The fair will run from October 18-21, 2018, concurrent with FIAC, and showcase 37 exhibitors representing 18 cities from 10 countries, with 8 first-time galleries.

In keeping with the fair’s international scope, OAF Paris is pleased to welcome several new exhibitors to the fair in 2018, including: Artpool Projects’ presentation of Ghanaian artist Kwame Akoto; Copenhagen Outsider Art Gallery, which will debut work from a selection of Danish ateliers; Galerie Atelier Herenplaats (Rotterdam); Galerie LJ (Paris); Gliacrobati (Turin); Galerie du moineau écarlate (Paris); Morrelandmore (Paris), which will exhibit ceramic sculptures by French actress and artist Florence Thomassin; and TAK Gallery (Poznań, Poland), the first Polish gallery dedicated to promoting Polish art brut.

Additional highlights include Rizomi’s (Parma, Italy) presentation of Egidio Cuniberti’s monumental figurative sculptures constructed of popsicle sticks, and Galerie Pol Lemétais (St. Sever du Moustier, France) and Galerie JP Ritsch-Fisch’s (Strasbourg, France) presentation of A.C.M.’s sculptures, created from old electronic parts, resembling cathedrals, shops and labyrinths. For the first time, Atsuko Barouh (Tokyo, Japan) will bring a collection of Boro — a class of traditional textiles that have been mended or patched together. As always, the Outsider Art Fair will offer visitors the opportunity to see artworks from internationally acclaimed figures, such as Bill Traylor and M’onma at Cavin-Morris Gallery; Henry Darger at Andrew Edlin Gallery; Madge Gill at Galerie du Marché; and Eugène Gabritschevsky at Les Yeux Fertiles, exemplifying OAF’s commitment to historical art brut.
