In this symposium, scholars, artists, curators, and critics explore how outsider art intersects with mainstream modern and contemporary art. Outsider artists are untrained individuals who often employ unusual materials and methods to create their art independently of familiar styles, trends, or movements. They rarely have the advantages of money, education, or art-school training. Instead, the inventiveness and storytelling aspects of their works are fueled by their personal narratives and by popular culture.
