For the entirety of its 21-year run, the Outsider Art Fair has been held during the winter months. This year, the show, which highlights Outsider, Self-Taught, and Folk Art, will take place in the spring, from May 8 through May 11 at Chelsea’s Center 548, the former home of the Dia Art Foundation in New York City. The show will coincide with the New York edition of the Frieze Art Fair.

Eleven galleries who have been with the Outsider Art Fair since the first show will return this year including American Primitive, Ricco/Maresca, Marion Harris, and Carl Hammer. In total, 46 exhibitors from around the globe will participate in the 2014 Outsider Art Fair.

Founded by Sanford Smith, the Outsider Art Fair was acquired by Wide Open Arts in 2012. Since its inception, the Outsider Art Fair has been dedicated to showcasing works by artists who have been obscured, neglected, or overlooked.
