The 2nd edition of the Art Absolument Prize for Outsider Art aims to help better publicize and recognize a whole range of creativity - whether it is called art brut, outsider art or art singulier - that is flourishing outside mainstream institutions.
During the Outsider Art Fair Paris, Art Absolument is excited to award the Prize to two living artists participating in the fair. Our jury will grant the prize to the artists behind the artworks chosen among pre-selected pieces by the curator of the prize, Barbara Safarova.
The prize will be awarded at the OAF booth of Art Absolument (booth 1) on Saturday, October 20, at 5 pm.
