Wide Open Arts

Founded in New York in 1993, the Outsider Art Fair is the original art fair concentrating specifically on self-taught art and presenting works by acknowledged masters and such living artists as George Widener, Susan Te Kahurangi King, Shinichi Sawada, Christine Sefolosha and Luboš Plný. Soon recognized for its maverick spirit, OAF played a vital role in nurturing a passionate collecting community and broader recognition for outsider art in the contemporary art arena.

After Wide Open Arts took over the fair, the OAF in 2013 enjoyed rave reviews and more than tripled its previous attendance records. Propelled by this success, Wide Open Arts took the fair to Paris for the first time in October 2013, helping to reinvigorate that city’s long tradition in the art brut field. After holding the fair during its first two years at Hôtel Le A, a boutique hotel, in 2015 OAF Paris relocated to Hôtel du Duc, a stately, nineteenth-century hôtel particulier in the Opéra district. In 2018, the fair expaned to its current venue, Atelier Richelieu, located in the 2nd arrondissement.
