Old Weird America: The The Fantastic World of Henry Darger (IN PERSON @ NORTHSIDE)

Primary tabs

Program Type: Lecture
Age: Adult
Registration for this event has closed.


It was a friend of Old Weird America who suggested we look into the life and art of Henry Darger, a reclusive hospital janitor who lived alone his entire life, and who created a child-like but explicit world of wonder and danger through storytelling and collage. Come hear about how, after his death, Henry Darger’s psychology became a topic of debate and his work became an exemplar of outsider art.
