Outsider Art in the Art Market

Panel discussion 'Outsider Art in the Art Market' will consider what the new spaces are for outsider art and what the responsibilities are for those involved in the interpretation, collection, curation and sale of these works within the contexts of today's art world. 


For example, Joseph Cornell has often been referred to as an 'outsider' but he was accepted into the art market as a partial Surrealist at a time when the art of the self-taught had no name of definition. If he had been defined as an outsider, would he have had difficulty being accepted into the canon of 20th century art history? How would this definition change our approach to the display, interpretation and market for his work? 


Join a panel of experts as they consider the journey of Outsider Art into new spaces such as the commercial art market and the impact this has on artists, collectors and collections. The panel will include Thomas Roeske, Director of the Prinzhorn Collection; John Maizels, Editor of Raw Vision Magazine; Marc Steene, Executive Director of Pallant House Gallery; artist Ian Sherman; and Jane England, Director of England & Co Gallery.
