Band of Outsiders: Self Taught Artists

July 23–30

artnet Auctions is pleased to announce Band of Outsiders: Self-Taught Artists, a selection of works by a diverse and spirited group of artists. Following the success of Massimiliano Gioni’s acclaimed exhibition, The Encyclopedic Palace, at the 2013 Venice Biennale, the work of these artistic renegades, many of whom lived out their lives in total obscurity, is now facing global recognition and a passionate following. Raw, subversive, and executed with a purity of spirit and uncanny degree of authenticity, we are looking for works by artists such as Henry Darger, Adolf Wölfli, Martín Ramírez, Jon Serl, William Hawkins, James Castle, Carlo Zinelli, Morton Bartlett, Anna Zemánková, Eugene Von Bruenchenhein, Howard Finster, and Sam Doyle.
