The Outsider Art Fair, the only fair dedicated to Self-Taught Art, Art Brut and Outsider Art, will host its 27th New York edition, taking place January 17-20, 2019 at The Metropolitan Pavilion. The fair will showcase 67 exhibitors, representing 37 cities from seven countries, with eight first-time galleries. This year, OAF will host two of its hallmark Curated Spaces. Good Kids: Underground Comics from China will feature zines and original drawings created by Chinese artists. Co-organized by Brett Littman (Director, Noguchi Museum, New York) and Yi Zhou (partner and curator of C5Art Gallery, Beijing), these works deal with subject matter that is scatological, sexual, puerile and anti-conformist, making the distribution and sales of these work in mainland China complicated to almost impossible. A second Curated Space will serve as homage to the late dealer Phyllis Kind.
