RAIR is thrilled to be honoring
John Ollman at the 2017 Trash Bash.
For nearly fifty years John has been an advocate for the arts in Philadelphia through his gallery, Fleisher/Ollman. An early proponent of ethnographic, folk, and self-taught artists, John himself seeks to dismantle these artificial terms: "I have spent my career as a dealer trying to break down the walls that exist between 'high' and 'low' art forms."
Not only has Fleisher/Ollman been a leading voice in these fields, but has provided an important platform to artists—particularly emerging artists in Philadelphia—who are in dialogue with this legacy.
