Featuring 64 exhibitors, a collaboration with the Birdsong Project, and a solo exhibit of paintings by Paul Laffoley.

Outsider Art Fair, the only fair dedicated to self-taught art, art brut and outsider art, is pleased to announce details for its 31st edition, taking place March 2–5, 2023 at the Metropolitan Pavilion in Manhattan, featuring 64 exhibitors from 28 cities in eight countries, with twelve first-time exhibitors.

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, Judith Scott, George Widener, and Joseph Yoakum.

For this year’s OAF Curated Space, the fair has joined forces with Grammy Award-winning music supervisor, Randall Poster, co-founder of the Birdsong Project, a collaboration with some of the world’s most respected musicians, artists, poets, and actors, to benefit the National Audobon Society. Poster and fair owner Andrew Edlin, who have been friends since childhood, will co-curate an exhibition, We Are Birds, featuring dozens of works inspired by birdlife made by self-taught and contemporary artists, including, Greg Burak, Minnie Evans, Tony Fitzpatrick, William Hawkins, Chris Johanson, Pam Lins, Eleanor Ray, Fred Tomaselli, and Bill Traylor. The project recently released For The Birds, a 20-LP box set containing over 200 tracks of original music and poetry by artists including Yoko Ono and Anohni, Elvis Costello, Laurie Anderson, Yo-Yo Ma, Beck, and Kamasi Washington, with avian-themed verse written by poets and read by actors and artists including Tilda Swinton and Robert Pattinson.

Another highlight of this year’s fair will be a special presentation of The Life and Death of Elvis Presley: A Suite by visionary American artist Paul Laffoley. The series of eight complex paintings, completed in 1995, represents the artist’s interpretation of the distinct phases in the life of Elvis Presley.

OAF Talks will feature two panel discussions, one on Minnie Evans moderated by MoMA curator Esther Adler, the other on Paul Laffoley organized by Douglas Walla, CEO of Marlborough Gallery, New York. Further details to be announced.
