Outsider Art Library

First coined by Roger Cardinal in the 1970s, "Outsider art" is an umbrella term for art made by the mentally ill—art that is distinguished by visionary and/or obsessive qualities, or the development of fantasy worlds and individual mythologies. Below is a selection of our leading titles on outsider artists, from the 18th-micrographic marvels of Matthias Buchinger to Horst Ademeit's Polaroid photographs of unseen negative forces permeating everyday objects.

Walks to the Paradise Garden: A Lowdown Southern Odyssey

Edited by Phillip March Jones. Text by Jonathan Williams. Photographs by Roger Manley, Guy Mendes.

A classic grand tour of Southern folk art, from Howard Finster to Lonnie Holley
Walks to the Paradise Garden is the last unpublished manuscript of the late American poet, photographer, publisher, Black Mountain alumnus and bon viveur Jonathan Williams (1929–2008). This 352-page book chronicles Williams' road trips across the Southern United States with photographers Guy Mendes and Roger Manley in search of the most authentic and outlandish artists the South had to offer. Williams describes the project thus: The people and places in Walks to the Paradise Garden exist along the blue highways of America.… We have traveled many thousands of miles, together and separately, to document what tickled us, what moved us, and what (sometimes) appalled us. The majority of these road trips took place in the 1980s, a pivotal decade in the development of Southern yard shows, and . . . .go to book page >>

Edited by Bice Curiger, Klaus Albrecht Schröder, Adrian Ciprian Barsan. Text by Tadao Ando, Friedrich Teja Bach, Adrian Ciprian Barsan, Gottfried Boehm, Bice Curiger, Mariam Dvali, Régis Gayraud, David Lordkipanidze.

The Georgian naive” painter Niko Pirosmani, sometimes known as Nikala (1862–1918), is long overdue for rediscovery. Today, this autodidact, who painted his pictures of animals and people for inns and pubs, is admired as a leading representative of naive” art, but the story of his original critical reception is remarkable. Hardly known outside of Georgia these days, his work was nevertheless displayed alongside works by Natalia Goncharova, Mikhail Larionov, Kazimir Malevich and Marc Chagall in the legendary 1913 exhibition Mischén (Target) in Moscow, where he was known as the Rousseau of the East.”
Pirosmani devised a unique visual vocabulary—black background, elementary . . . .go to book page >>
