SANFORD SMITH'S 2011 Outsider Art Fair

James Kalm gets funky and invites viewers to join him as he takes a brief tour of the 2011 version of the "Outsiders Art Fair". With the current state of art and "critical theory" having reached a level of hermetic indecipherability, audiences and artists have sought more meaningful content. Authenticity had become the new measure of relevance and with a few exceptions Outsider art is being reconsidered as the locus of a revived humanism. Strolling through this fair we catch glimpses of works by many of the best known Outsiders including: Purvis Young, Howard Finster, Bill Traylor, William Hawkins, Michel Nedjar, George Widner et al. Among the Outsiders, there's always room for stunning surprises, and this fair is no exception.
