A JOS team will be heading down to Chichester to do a presentation at the European Outsider Art Conference this Sunday, May 6th.
It’s raised an interesting debate around what is or is not outsider art, and if there is outsider art then there must be insider or ‘mainstream’ art. Is necessary or even desirable to want to be an insider?
Is it the artist rather than the art that is seen as an ‘outsider’?
Where does Joy of Sound sit in relation to outsider art?
