"Outsider Artists: Bridging Communities" is guest curated by John Jerit, a renowned collector of works by self-taught artists. The exhibition is a survey of the genre, with a wide mix of imagery and materials.
The exhibition of works by artists commonly classified "Self-taught," "Folk" or "Outsider" artists includes works by Mose Tolliver (1918-2006), Jimmy Lee Sudduth (1910-2007), Howard Finster (1916-2001), Purvis Young (1943-2010) and others.
Rather than conveying individuality, outsider artists typically depict a larger cultural identity associated with the shared values of a specific community. Commonly they use whatever materials are at hand in a manner that is often obsessive or compulsive.
Each artist in "Outsider Artists: Bridging Communities" offers a unique representation of their specific background and culture.
