Join ArtTable and Valérie Rousseau, PhD, Senior Curator & Curator of Self-Taught Art and Art Brut at The American Folk Art Museum, for a curatorial walk- through of Memory Palaces: Inside the Collection of Audrey B. Heckler.
The collection of Audrey B. Heckler is emblematic of the growth of the field of self-taught art in the United States, which manifests a strong interest for African American artists, a consistent attention on American classics, a curiosity for European art brut, and a search for international discoveries. For the last twenty-seven years, Heckler—a long time and committed patron of the American Folk Art Museum—has surrounded herself with excellent examples by the most significant artists associated to this art niche, among them Emery Blagdon, Aloïse Corbaz, William Edmondson, August Klett, Augustin Lesage, Martín Ramírez, Thornton Dial, and Anna Zemánková. For more information see here.
Thank you to Valérie Rousseau and Elisabeth Rochau- Shalem, NY Programs Committee Chair, for organizing this program.
