About the event

Outsider Art is art created by self-taught artists perceived to be on the margins of society. Explore the notion of the outsider with three perspectives on Outsider Art, from art critic Roger Cardinal, who coined the term 'Outsider Art', Shamita Sharmacharja, curator of 'Souzou: Outsider Art from Japan', and Dr David O'Flynn, a consultant psychiatrist.

Hear about early psychiatrists’ interest in art as a diagnostic tool, the growing recognition of visionary artists in the 19th century and the recent popularity of Outsider Art with collectors. Discuss the changing attitudes towards this work, and how it is perceived in psychiatry and the arts.

Discussion
This event will involve presentations from the speakers and a panel discussion, followed by a chance for questions from the audience.

Speakers:
Dr David O'Flynn, consultant psychiatrist at the Lambeth and Maudsley Hospitals and Chair of the Adamson Collection.
Shamita Sharmacharja, curator, Wellcome Collection.
Roger Cardinal, independent scholar.

Facilitator: 
John Maizels, Editor, 'Raw Vision' magazine.
