OUTSIDER ART exhibits Misleidys Castillo, Isaac Crespo, Sebastián Ferreira, Damián Valdés Dilla, and Boris Lopez’ works. Produced by untrained artists often recovering from mental illnesses who are typically distant from the conventional art world -these 30 pieces- represent honesty and passion from an often ignored and misunderstood part of the population. Outsiders in a world in which art is produced and experienced in reference to dominant schools of thought and painting traditions, the artists in this collection offer us a refreshingly personal and daring reminder of our humanity.
NAEMI is a nonprofit organization dedicated to discovering, studying, promoting, exhibiting, and preserving art by persons recovering from mental illnesses throughout the world. During the past 29 years, NAEMI has done pioneering work in recognizing the artistic talent among many individuals recovering from mental illnesses and provides a forum for bringing these extraordinary talents to public awareness.
