This exhibition explores how several important avant-garde movements, spanning the 20th century, have influenced America’s art-world ‘outliers’ – self-trained artists, whose work has often been overlooked in histories of modern art. It explores how folk art was championed in the early years of the century, before looking at the impact of Chicago Imagism and West Coast assemblage, and ends with a look at contemporary artists. Around 250 works are on show, ranging from painting to photography, by artists including Henry Darger, Sister Gertrude Morgan, and Matt Mullican. Find out more about the ‘Outliers’ exhibition from LACMA’s website.
