Florida's Self-Taught Renegade Artists with Gary Monroe
Please note, this event has expired.
SPEAKER SERIES: Gary Monroe
Fri, January 25 | 7:30 PM
Introducing people to the world of Outsider art, this vivid PowerPoint-assisted lecture focuses on art that has been created by uninitiated artists who are distinguished by their idiosyncrasies and wild visions. Their works fly in the face of traditional art-making and is guaranteed to shake long-standing foundations. In recent years, Outsider art has been co-opted into the museum culture, thereby altering our views about the nature of art and aesthetics. In this presentation, Mr. Monroe introduces twelve remarkable self- taught Florida artists, while exposing the ideas which led to their renegade creations.
Support for the Speaker Series is provided by a grant from the Florida Humanities Council with funds from the Florida Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs.
