LACMA will host the West Coast presentation of Outliers and American Vanguard Art, the first major exhibition to explore key moments in American art history when avant-garde artists and outliers intersected, and how their interchanges ushered in new paradigms based on inclusion, integration, and assimilation.The exhibition features over 250 works in a range of media by more than 80 self-taught and trained artists such as Henry Darger, William Edmondson, Lonnie Holley, Greer Lankton, Sister Gertrude Morgan, Matt Mullican, Horace Pippin, Martín Ramírez, BetyeSaar, Judith Scott, Charles Sheeler, Cindy Sherman, Bill Traylor, and Kara Walker.
