Ben Allen: The World of "Outside Artist" Henry Darger

Join ChaiVillageLA member Ben Allen as he introduces us to the world and work of Henry Darger.

"Outside Artists" is a term used to describe artists untrained in conventional schools and unrecognized in the mainstream art world. One of the more well-known of this group is Henry Darger. When Darger died in a nursing home in 1973, at the age of 81, his landlord discovered a trove of more than 30,000 manuscript pages and over 300 canvases depicting a rich fantasy world. Henry Darger's work is now recognized as epic and valuable.
