Outsider Art Fair announces exhibitor list, programming & new venue for 6th Paris edition
Outsider Art Fair Paris.

NEW YORK, NY.- The Outsider Art Fair, the premiere fair dedicated to Self-Taught Art, Art Brut and Outsider Art, is announced the exhibitor list, programming and new venue 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); Le 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.

A highlight this year is the fair’s new project with Lamyland, the brainchild of creative instigator Michèle Lamy. Lamyland is the umbrella term for Lamy’s happenings – which includes instillation, performance and urban intervention – aiming to connect art and life. Since its inception with Bargel (Frieze London, 2014), to Bargenale I and II (Venice Biennale, 2015/2017) and What Are We Fighting For? at Selfridges (as part of their Radical Luxury Campaign, 2018), Lamyland functions to catalyze the creation of cultural engagement as a way of inspiring social and urban change. Additional details forthcoming.

For the second year, OAF Talks will be produced in collaboration with Hôtel Drouot, featuring two panel discussions. “Discovering 170 Years of Historic Art Works by Patients of Mental Asylums” will focus on the recent discoveries of rare artworks created by inmates of mental asylums in Europe, and bring together experts from Switzerland, Austria, Great Britain and France, including panelists: Katrin Luchsinger (Psychologist and Professor, Zürcher Hochschule für Kunst), Elisabeth Telsnig (PhD, Art History), Dr. David O’Flynn (Board Chair, Adamson Collection Trust), Dr. Anne-Marie Dubois (Director, Centre d’etude d’expression at Saint-Anne hospital); and moderator Thomas Röske (Director, Prinzhorn Collection). The second talk will be organized by curator and writer Edward M. Gómez, and bring to the forefront a renewed interest in Art Brut from the Americas.

Also returning for the second year is the Art Absolument Prize for Outsider Art, which will be awarded at the Espace Art Absolument, located in the 13th arrondissement of Paris. Organized by Barbara Safarova (Collection ABCD), the award will be vetted by a jury composed of experts from diverse backgrounds and will grant €10,000 to a living artist participating in the fair. Jurors include: Jury Chair, Bruno Decharme (Collection ABCD); David Cohen (Psychiatrist and Artist); Marc Strauss (Psychoanalyst and Collector); Choghakate Kazarian (Curator); and Valérie Ranson-Enguiale (Art Historian).
