We know it’s tough to think about 2015 already, but feast your eyes on the exhibitor list for New York’s Outsider Art Fair, which will take place January 29–February 1 at Chelsea’s Center548. This year’s edition will feature over 40 galleries from 23 cities and 7 countries.

The fair, which also runs in Paris, aims to give a platform to folk, outsider, and self-taught artists operating largely outside the mainstream sphere. “The Outsider Art Fair remains the singular event to see works by both celebrated and newly discovered self-taught artists from around the world,” said Rebecca Hoffman, Director of the Outsider Art Fair.

It will also be the last art fair to take place in the historic Chelsea building, as it was just sold to a new landlord (see “Owner of Former Dia Building Ousts Independent Fair and Zach Feuer“) who is giving the boot to the arts organizations. Center548 owner Daniel Kobin lamented to artnet News, “Everyone’s gearing towards the next Google, not towards arts organizations. Manhattan will soon be extinct.”

What a better way to bid adieu to the beloved building (and to Manhattan, apparently) than to enjoy work coming from a decidedly different perspective?
