Every (wo)man is an artist
Hidden talents in nursing homes
1 April - 2 May 2021
Every human being carries talents, the human mind, even affected by dementia, can still be resourceful and creative as is shown in this exhibition.
Illustrator and care worker Eva Gans shows a large quantity of drawings that are made under her supervision by people with dementia in several nursing homes in Amsterdam.
Besides drawings Outsider Art Gallery shows video performances of 6 spoken word artists. These performances are inspired on the literal speak of people with dementia, the so called 'Dementees'.
Outsider Art Gallery
In the Outsider Art Gallery changing exhibitions of well-known and less known outsiders from the Netherlands and abroad take place. You will find paintings, drawings, prints, ceramic statues, sculpture, collages, photos and textile art. All works are for sale, the entrance to the gallery is free.
The Outsider Art Gallery is founded in 2016 by Cordaan care organisation in cooperation with the Hermitage Museum Amsterdam and Museum het Dolhuys Haarlem.
The art in the Outsider Art Gallery is often unconventional. Most the artists have an intellectual or mental disability. They are not concerned with commercial targets and their works do not reflect current trends in art. The art comes bubbling up from within – it is in their minds and just needs to come out. Their work is fascinating, versatile and very pure. The Outsider Art Gallery offers a fully-fledged art platform for these colourful artists, not inside the walls of a care organisation, but rather in an inspiring museum environment.
Outsider Art StudiosCurrently a group of 15 artists is at work in the Outsider Art Studios, located above the gallery. They are accompanied by professional artists and pedagogical employees and work on their own art: painting, drawing, print making and digital media. In the studios companies or groups of individuals can also attend art workshops led by an outsider artist.
