DESCRIPTION

The new Self-Taught Genius Gallery in Long Island City launches with a selection of icons from the landmark exhibition Self-Taught Genius: Treasures from the American Folk Art Museum, which toured nationally from 2014 to 2017. Generously supported by the Henry Luce Foundation, both the new gallery and the namesake exhibition shows folk and self-taught art from the eighteenth through twenty-first centuries drawn from the museum’s collection of more than 8,000 works of art.

Highlights from Self-Taught Genius is co-curated by Stacy C. Hollander, Deputy Director for Curatorial Affairs, Chief Curator, and Director of Exhibitions, and Dr. Valérie Rousseau, Curator, Art of the Self-Taught and Art Brut, both of the American Folk Art Museum.
