Featuring Michael Bonesteel, a leading author and expert on Henry Darger, art dealer Marion Harris, who has brought the work of Morton Bartlett to international acclaim, and renowned artist Joe Coleman, this panel, moderated by critic and curator Carlo McCormick, will present a risky conversation on the outré within outsider art, and consider what place this kind of work now occupies in a body politic increasingly defined by a new social consciousness and sensitivity.
Trigger Warning: The material that will be discussed arises from private desires and urges that are not considered appropriate or normal by conventional societal standards. The panel will deal with these issues in a nonjudgemental spirit of tolerance, but is not recommended for those who may find non-hegemonic perspectives on sexuality or violence disturbing.

Joe performed as part of the Le Guess Who? performance series in November 2018 in Utrecht Holland.
In this unique live conversation moderated by film writer and producer Heather Buckley, Joe Coleman will investigate a series of films and the ways that concepts of high and low art intersect in and around them. The first will be Gerald Kargl’s Angst (1983) and JohnParker’s Dementia aka Daughters of Horror (1955) —exploring the serial killer story. Godard’s Alphaville (1965) and Ed Wood Jr.’s Plan 9 From Outer Space (1959) —a comparison of cast and similar iconography over both works. Sam Peckinpah’s The Wild Bunch (1969) and Charles Brabin’s Beast of the City (1932) —a look at the depiction of violence; realism vs expressionism. And finally, an exploration of autopsy as performance and in cinema, the trained hand vs. the Outsider.
