26 July-15 Oct 2006. The Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) presents an exhibition exploring the parallels between established mainstream and Outsider artists. The term Outsider Art is the English rendition of the French Art Brut coined by artist Jean Dubuffet to describe art by insane asylum inmates; however, the English term has a broader meaning covering nave, visionary and non-institutionalised artists. Inner Worlds Outside features works by Insider artists including James Ensor, Philip Guston, Joan Mir and Henri Rousseau alongside Outsiders such as Henry Darger, Madge Gill, Adolf Wlfi and Dublin-based Croatian Outsider Dusan Kusmic. An introductory talk to the exhibition, presented by curators Jon Thompson and Monika Kinley, will be held at 17.00 on 25 Aug in the West Wing of the gallery. Booking essential. The exhibition draws on artworks from The Musgrave Kinley Outsider Art collection, on loan to IMMA since 1998, as well as public and private collections from Brazil, Europe and the USA. Admission free. Tues-Sat 10.00-17.30, Weds 10.30-17.30, Sun & Bank holidays 12.00-17.30.
