Preserving the works of artists from outside the conventional world, the Outsider Art Fair Paris (October 18 - 21, 2018), features the work of self-taught art, art brut and outsider art. Now in it’s 6th edition, the fair is located at Atelier Richelieu, in the 2nd Arrondissement, near the Grand Palais.
The fair will showcase 37 exhibitors representing 18 cities from 10 countries, with 8 first-time galleries. New exhibitors to the fair for 2018 include: 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.
The fair will also have panel discussions and jury award.
