Dargerism: Contemporary Artists and Henry Darger

I’ve never been to the Folk Art Museumm here before because I’m unapologetically just not that moved by Folk Art. But now I’m intrigued by the new show there Dargerism: Contemporary Artists and Henry Darger that showcases Henry Darger influenced artists. What a creepy, brilliant man he was*.

Though a part of me wonders if making art in the style of Henry Darger is like saying you write in the style of Chuck Palahniuk?

Either way, I’m going to check it out.

*I was totally joking about him being a pedophile but I can see how it was offensive. I love his work. I apologize.
