Outsiders: an art without precedent or tradition, with a preface by Victor Musgrave and an essay by Roger Cardinal
London: Authors and Arts Council of Great Britain, 1979. First Edition. softcover. Very Good. 8vo, 172pp in printed wrappers. Published to coincide with exhibition of same name, at Outsiders the Hayward Gallery, South Bank, February 8 - April 8 1979. This seminal event, while preceded by expressions such as Dubuffets Art Brut (1948) or Art-hors-les-normes, simultaneously brought outsider art to a larger forum while stigmatizing the artists themselves. As art historian Elisabeth Herles suggests, how far can one encounter art without being then influenced by the knowledge about its circumstances of production?
