In 1992, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art presented a groundbreaking exhibition titled “Parallel Visions,” which traced the connections between modern artists and their self-taught colleagues. This exhibition played a major role in establishing the field of “Outsider Art” as it exists today. However, just as our view of modernism has changed in the intervening years, the boundaries between “outsider” and “insider” art have gradually begun to blur. Parallel Visions II: “Outsider” and “Insider” Art Today, planned to run from April 5 through May 26, will provide an incisive update on the subject by pairing self-taught artists with “mainstream” contemporary artists.
Among the artists scheduled for inclusion in the exhibition are Roger Ackling, Chelo Amezqua, Emery Blagdon, Joseph Crepin, Henry Darger, Lucky de Bellevue, Steve di Benedetto, Marcel Dzama, Öyvind Fahlstrom, Sam Gordon, Chris Hipkiss, Ray Johnson, Frank Jones, Michel Nedjar, Raymond Pettibon, Sandra Sheehy, James Siena, Mary Temple, Anna Zemankova and Rosa Zharkikh.
