Inner Worlds Outside

Inner Worlds Outside brings together works by established mainstream artists and Outsider artists - individuals producing from the “fringes of society”. The exhibition aims to question the problematic distinction between Insider and Outsider Art by exploring the parallels between them as well as the impact of some Outsider artists on major figures of twentieth century art. The exhibition comprises some 140 works by Insiders such as James Ensor, Philip Guston, Henri Rousseau and Outsiders such as Henry Darger, Madge Gill and Adolf Wölfli. It draws on selected work from the Musgrave Kinley Outsider Art Collection, which is on loan to the Irish Museum of Modern Art, as well as from works from public and private collections in Europe, Brazil and the US.
