Excepts from 2008 Arts Access Fringe 08, Opening Speech by Paul Hoban (Uni of SA, School of Art) March 2008
“The word ‘Outsider’ suggests something outside of a boundary -a boundary that defines what is inside and what is not. In reality, I do not believe that art has such boundaries. The margin, in fact, is a reservoir that ‘mainstream’ art has drawn on for inspiration - to re-invent, to redefine and challenge itself… and even to contradict.
‘Outsider Art’ has become a generic term - incorporating not only artists with mental, intellectual or physical disabilities, but also embracing folk artists, ‘intuitives’, naïve and other visionary artists - across cultures. Outsider art is certainly not peripheral. It is genuinely multicultural.
Invariably, the most important artists are those whose work consciously or innocently challenges the rules. It seems to me, that many artists who are now admired for their originality were considered Outsiders in their time.
The most well known example is Van Gogh - a difficult, abject and lonely artist, rejected even by his peers… In his lifetime he never sold a single painting. Even his contemporary Cezanne, whose paintings challenged painting conventions and inspired Cubism, considered Van Gogh’s work to be the product of ‘a madman’… Today, a single Van Gogh painting can sell for a hundred million dollars!
Today, Outsider art is taken very seriously around the world. It is big business. Specialist galleries and museums are popping up everywhere - France and Germany, Holland, Belgium, Japan, Britain, US and Canada to name a few.
Works from Lausanne’s Art Brut and Heidelberg’s Prinzhorn Collections are constantly touring the world… In January, New York hosted its 16th International Outsider Art Fair, the European Outsider Art Fair will commence in Vienna in May. Why not an International Outsider Art Fair in Australia?... in Adelaide? These art fairs are now seen as major events in the International Art Calendar.
I encourage everyone to start collecting now!”
