Horizon of Outsider Art
The Hikarie Contemporary Art Eye series features galleries and individuals who explore the Japanese art scene with fresh perspectives.
Titled as “Horizon of Outsider Art”, the forth exhibition of the series is presented by Tomio Koyama Gallery with collaboration of Yukiko Koide Presents and MEM.
When one says, “I like Outsider Art!”, it is suggested that all Outsider Art as a genre is wonderful without exception. However, as in “Insider Art”, which is defined by the established frame of art, there are great ones as art, and not so great ones. Although the boundary between “in” and “out” is always unclear, this exhibition goes beyond and explores to see a wide world of Outsider Art. The artists of Outsider Art bring up a fundamental question: what does it means to draw, paint, and create for humans?
