Outliers and American Vanguard Art Exhibition Catalogue

Since the last century, the relationship between mainstream and self-taught artists has been defined by contradiction. The established art world has been quick to make clear distinctions between trained and untrained artists yet at the same time is fascinated by outliers, whom it draws selectively and intermittently into its orbit. Curator Lynne Cooke explores shifting conceptualizations of the American outlier in twentieth-century art. This exhibition and its companion catalogue investigate assumptions about creativity, artistic practice, and the role of the artist in contemporary culture through works by Charles Sheeler, Christina Ramberg, Matt Mullican, Horace Pippin, Janet Sobel, and Henry Darger, and many others.
