Nonconformers: A New History of Self-Taught Artists
A global history of self-taught artists advocating for a nuanced understanding of modern and contemporary art often challenged by the establishment.
When the art world has paid attention to makers from outside the cultural establishment, including so-called outsider and self-taught artists, it has generally been within limiting categories. Yet these artists, including many women, people with disabilities, and people of color, have had a transformative influence on the history of modern art. Responding to growing interest in these artists, this book offers a nuanced history of their work and how it has been understood from the early twentieth century to the present day. Hardcover, 400 pages.
