We are delighted that our proposal for a Baha'i Temple in Papua New Guinea was selected to be shown in the Curated Space in this year's Outsider Art Fair.
The Outsider Art Fair takes place Jan 21–24, 2016 at the Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 West 18th St, New York, NY 10011.

Curated Space: Babel
Wide Open Arts will host a curated booth of imaginary towers in the upcoming Outsider Art Fair | NYC (Jan 21-24 2016). The project and space will be curated by independent artist and curator, Leah Gordon and the winning tower will be judged by Leah Gordon and award-winning architect Vivian Chan, Studio Verve Architects.
Imaginary cities and surreal structures have long been the domain of many outsider artists. This exhibition aims to create a collective multi-authorial installation that descends from the Fluxus mail art movement. “Babel” is the 21st century mail art for the digital world. The final result will recall many renowned outsider environments such as Simon Rodia’s Watts Towers, Nek Chand’s Rock Garden and Le Facteur Cheval’s Palais Idéal.
Selected artists will receive accreditation in a dedicated (printed) brochure on the curated booth, as well as listed on a dedicated page (permalink) on the Outsider Art Fair website. The first prize will be accompanied by a $1000 honorarium.
