Wide Open Arts

Wide Open Arts, LLC was formed by art dealer Andrew Edlin and became the owner of the Outsider Art Fair in 2012. Then in its 21st year, WOA expanded and relocated the New York fair to Center 548 in Chelsea, and introduced guest curatorial projects and the OAF Talks program. OAF New York relocated to the Metropolitan Pavilion in 2015
where it recently celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2017.

WOA’s debut 2013 edition of the fair tripled previous attendance levels and received rave reviews from many renowned writers and publications. Propelled by this success, Wide Open Arts took the fair to Paris for the first time in October 2013, helping to reinvigorate the city’s long tradition of recognizing and championing art brut and self-taught artists.
OAF Paris will be celebrating its fifth anniversary this October, 2017.
