Event Details

A Roundhouse partnership with the Community Arts Council of Vancouver

Since the 1970s, the term “outsider art” has been used increasingly to refer to any artist who is self taught or has little to no contact with the mainstream art world or art institutions. Outsider art now includes visionary, intuitive, folk, naïve and aboriginal artists. What continues to be vastly understated is how much Art Brut has contributed to modern art.

The 2017 Outsider Art Festival features a three-day visual art exhibition showcasing several outsider artists from British Columbia. There are also performances on the evening of Fri Aug 11 and Sat Aug 12 featuring outsider performance art and theatre.

The festival aims to increase the awareness about outsider artists and to challenge stereotypes about who and what is valued as art. The Outsider Art Festival provides an opportunity to exhibit, promote and validate the imaginative creative work of outsider artists.
