About The Event
For May Third Friday (from home) Project Onward presents an online exclusive exhibition:"Outsider Connections." All works go live on our website Friday at 10 AM CST!Through form, content, and style, we continue to find parallels between the artwork of Project Onward Artists and that of various Outsider Artists, past and present. What are the environmental, societal, and economic factors that establish an artist as having the distinction of “Outsider Artist?" How does this relate to the artists of Project Onward, who work both in a community of unique artists and at home, sometimes with family or friends around them and sometimes in isolation? Inspired by the work of various artists in this genre, Project Onward looks to question (if not always answer) and challenge what the next step in this genre of art will be moving forward. We mean to open a visual dialogue with the viewer in hopes that more questions and curiosity about these forms of art emerge. Stay tuned for an announcement about an upcoming virtual panel discussion around this topic!
