Oct. 15, 2000 PANEL DISCUSSION Discovery, Inside/Out: A Forum on "Outsider Artists"

How can we interpret the work of self-taught artists meaningfully? To what extent are existing models useful? How does discovery and economics impact the artist? Does the intense and visionary nature of much of "outsider" work lead us to question the validity of academic training? Are there future discoveries? Or has the marketplace, collector driven in the case of "outsider art," commercialized the work? These issues will be addressed by our panel members in a forum on this provocative realm of the art world. Presented in conjunction with the exhibition "Drawing the Inner Terrain: Self-Taught Artists"

Panel: Philip Linhares, Chief Curator of Art, Oakland Museum; Tom di Maria, Director, Creative Growth Art Center; Bonnie Grossman, Director, The Ames Gallery; Margaret Robson, Collector

Moderated by: Jo Farb Hernandez, Folklorist, Author, and Curator.

Fee: $6.50; members $5.00
Advance reservations recommended, 650.329.2366
