On 26th April 2012 the “Outsiders on the Map” symposium will be coming to the Museum Dr Guislain in Ghent, Belgium.
Outsider Art is flourishing. On 26 April 2012 the book Outsiders On the Map. Exploring European Outsider Art – a Notebook will be presented at an international symposium in Ghent. The publication explores 60 initiatives – good practices in the field of outsider art – in 26 countries in Europe. Not only does it look at the places where outsider art is created (workshops, sheltered workshops, etc), but also the places where it is presented (museums, galleries, etc).
At the symposium Outsiders on the Map , details of many of the initiatives in the book will be presented. Great emphasis will be placed on the organisations, workshops and museums that have done outstanding work to give outsider art a place in the cultural and social debate.
Outsiders on the Map is the place to be to learn about new European organisations. A unique opportunity to come together!
This will be followed on the 27th April by the annual meeting of the European Outsider Art Association from 10am – 12pm.
THIS TWO DAY EVENT IS NOT TO BE MISSED!!
