The 2014 Fair was a great success.  If you didn't get to go you can join Stuart Shepherd on a tour of the exhibition he curated at the show by watching this video.

The Auckland Outsider Art Fair aims to create a platform from which to, not only celebrate and popularize art work that originates outside the usual venues, but review new ideas around the field of self-taught art in New Zealand.
