New York Outsider Art Fair 2024

One of the more fascinating art events in NYC, the Outsider Art Fair returns February 29th to March 3 at the Metropolitan Pavilion (125 W 18th Street, NY, NY). The OAF features 63 exhibitors—including nine who are showing for the first time— from 32 cities spanning eight countries, plus two special presentations for OAF’s trademark Curated Spaces.

Other highlights include Ricco Maresca’s presentation of original gouache paintings for classic American circus posters from the early 20th century. James Barron’s booth will include works by Janet Sobel (1893-1968), whose solo exhibition at Houston’s Menil Collection opens the week prior. Alexander Dijulio will feature a survey of Balinese painters with works from the 1930s up to the present, and Emilia Galatis will showcase Indigenous art from Australia. Andrew Edlin will debut the miniature landscape assemblages by retired NYC firefighter Dennis Gordon, and first-time exhibitor Hashimoto Contemporary will show Abigail Goldman’s “die-o-ramas,” miniature scenes of gruesome murders rendered in plastic and acrylic that evoke her career as an investigator at the Public Defender’s office in Bellingham, WA.

For this year’s Curated Spaces, OAF joins forces with longtime exhibitor Creative Growth Art Center to celebrate its 50th anniversary as one of the world’s longest running and most dynamic independent art centers for people with disabilities. Director Emeritus Tom di Maria will curate Expanding the Canon: 50 Years of Creative Growth, featuring artworks sourced from private collections including never-before-exhibited pieces by Dwight Mackintosh, Donald Mitchell, William Scott, Monica Valentine, Aurie Ramirez, William Tyler, and Judith Scott.
