Join us for a tour with LACMA educator Elizabeth Gerber of the only West Coast presentation of Outliers and American Vanguard Art, an exhibition of 250 artworks created during the twentieth century by "insiders" (trained) and "outsiders" (self-taught) artists.

Curated by Lynne Cooke, Senior Curator, Special Projects in Modern Art at the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC, the survey focuses a lens on three standout moments in the history of modern and contemporary art when the avant-garde sought inspiration and championed the work of untrained artists, thereby sparking institutional interest: early modernism corresponding to the foundational years at MoMA, the late 1960s and 70s, and the onset of our current century. Featuring sumptuous work in an array of media by over 80 mostly American artists (the French Douanier Rousseau makes an appearance!), the expansive show offers a feast for the eyes as well as food for thought.


See here for Christopher Knight's LA Times review.

We will gather directly at the Resnick Pavilion. LACMA is open until 8:00 pm on Fridays, so attendees are welcome to linger after the tour or gather for drinks and nibbles at the Stark Bar.
