A strange occurrence

In this space, there's always something new being discovered, something unusual being discovered. It's not like a commodities exchange.

Passion drives dealers

In some ways, we're the only game in town because these dealers are passionate about what they do, not because they see dollar signs.

A new addition was announced

The fair has also announced the addition of Sofa Lanusse as its director; she was previously director of the Paris fair of the Outsider Art Fair.

Maintaining a goal

As Lanusse said in an interview, the fair already presents self-taught, folk, naive, and outsider art. I aim to continue giving these terms space to show the importance of their work and artists.
