NEW YORK, NY.- Yesterday, the Outsider Art Fair––the only fair dedicated to showcasing self-taught art, art brut and outsider art from around the world––announced that it will delay its 30th Anniversary edition by one month. The fair will now be held March 3-6, 2022 at the Metropolitan Pavilion in Manhattan and feature 62 exhibitors from around the world. The 10th anniversary edition of OAF Paris is scheduled to take place in May 2022.

Commented fair owner, Andrew Edlin: “Last year in response to the pandemic, we presented a citywide edition of the fair with seven exhibitions across five locations around New York. Returning to our traditional fair venue for the first time since the beginning of the pandemic, the health and safety of our dealers and our audience remains paramount. Delaying the fair by a month was a difficult but sensible decision.”


As part of the anniversary celebration, OAF is excited to present special programming in its Curated Spaces sector. Field Trip: Psychedelic Solution, 1986-1995, showcases work championed by the seminal underground Greenwich Village gallery, Psychedelic Solution, and is curated by renowned contemporary artist Fred Tomaselli. In homage to the folkloric aspects of psychedelic art, from which much of this movement organically arose, singular artifacts that capture definitive cultural moments will abound, including the original ink drawing by Edmund J. Sullivan, dated 1900, that became the genesis for the logo for the Grateful Dead. The OAF Curated Spaces programming also includes Beyond Genres: Self-Taught Artists Making Contemporary Art, curated by Paul Laster and featuring artists whose work lives on the borderlands between outsider and contemporary art. LA painter Eric White and filmmaker Aaron Guadamuz will curate a show of works by self-taught artist and clay animator Bruce Bickford (1947-2019), a longtime collaborator of Frank Zappa, and Phillip March Jones will organize an exhibition of highlights from the collection of Michael Stipe, an early collector and advocate for Southern self-taught artists including Reverend Howard Finster (1916 – 2001).


Field Trip: Psychedelic Solution will be the subject of an OAF Talk moderated by Nicole Rudick with panelists Fred Tomaselli, Carlo McCormick and Psychedelic Solution founder, Jacaeber Kastor. The event will take place at the Ace Hotel in New York. Tickets will be made available at a later date, and the event will operate at a limited capacity.


Returning dealers who have been with OAF since its inception include Aarne Anton / Nexus Singularity (New York), Cavin-Morris Gallery (New York), Fleisher/Ollman Gallery (Philadelphia), Carl Hammer Gallery (Chicago), Marion Harris (New York), and Ricco/Maresca Gallery (New York). Visitors can once again count on seeing works by the most acclaimed artists in the field, like Morton Bartlett, James Castle, Henry Darger, Thornton Dial, William Edmondson, Minnie Evans, Guo Fengyi, Bill Traylor, Martín Ramírez, Nellie Mae Rowe, and Joseph Yoakum.

Additional highlights include several solo presentations, among them an homage to influential dealer Luise Ross by SHRINE (New York); and drawings by the legendary musician Daniel Johnston (1962-2019) at Electric Lady Studios (New York). The fair also continues its longstanding relationship with the world’s top ateliers or “workshops” that serve artists with developmental or physical disabilities, including the Creative Growth Art Center (Oakland), Fountain House (New York), Creativity Explored (San Francisco), Center for Creative Works (Philadelphia), LAND (New York), Project Onward (Chicago), Sage Studio (Austin), Tierra del Sol Gallery (Los Angeles) and newcomers Arts for Life (Chicago) and ArTech Collective (NewYork).
