Outliers and American Vanguard Art

  • Los Angeles County Museum of Art (map)
Outliers and American Vanguard Art Art Muse Los Angeles

Join Art Muse LA director Clare Kunny on a guided walk-through and discussion of artworks by outsider artists and avant-garde pioneers in Outliers and American Vanguard Art. LACMA's exhibition explores the intersection of folk art and American high modernism, as well as to call attention to these self-taught artists' profound impact on contemporary art. Selected works—paintings, drawings, sculptures, and textiles— with an emphasis on African American artists will be featured as we celebrate their unique visions and contributions to American art.
