Bill Traylor at David Zwirner, New York

until February 15, 2020

David Zwirner presents works by Bill Traylor (c. 1853–1949) from The William Louis-Dreyfus Foundation and Family Collections. Organised in collaboration with the Foundation, the exhibition offers a comprehensive look at the artist’s distinctive imagery, which mixes subjects and iconography from the American South with a strong formalistic treatment of colour, shape, and surface. As part of the Foundation’s broader philanthropic mission, proceeds from the sales of its artworks will benefit the Harlem Children’s Zone, as well as the Foundation itself.

Outsider Art at Orleans House Gallery, London

until February 16, 2020

Over the last two decades, Orleans House Gallery has worked closely with the Henry Boxer Gallery to showcase pioneering displays of outsider and visionary art. This autumn, the Richmond-based dealer and collector Henry Boxer returns with new and familiar self-taught artists and works to engage and enlighten – each offering a unique vision, from the occult to the mediumistic.

Featured artists include the Edwardian portrayer of mad cats, Louis Wain; the housewife-medium, Madge Gill; the visionary depicter of resurrections, Donald Pass; and contemporary savant artists George Widener and Stephen Wiltshire.

Artists exhibiting for the first time include Matthew Nightingale, an ex prisoner, who recently won the Koestler Award, William A Hall aka ‘The LA Car Man’, who lived homeless on the streets of Los Angeles, in a beaten-up old Dodge, secretly producing drawings of futuristic cars, and Kim Noble, who has Multiple Personality Disorder, with 13 personalities working as artists in their own distinctive styles, each totally unaware of the others.

Henry Boxer states: ‘This year has been an important one for outsider art – with ground-breaking exhibitions at the Wellcome, William Morris Gallery and College of Psychic Studies – all of which I had loaned works to. I am therefore delighted to be invited to show at Orleans House Gallery once again, I hope that the art on display allows for an opening, and a discovery, of who we all truly are, beyond words, ideas and appearances.’

Organised by the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s Renwick Gallery, “No Spectators” makes its west coast debut and final stop at OMCA, featuring iconic sculptures, immersive installations, and interactive artwork from Burning Man, which draws over 70,000 people to Nevada’s Black Rock Desert each year. An adaptation of the original exhibition, "No Spectators" takes over OMCA’s Great Hall and beyond, with outdoor sculpture throughout the Museum’s public spaces, including an OMCA-commissioned 40-foot-tall outdoor temple by David Best. A companion exhibition within the gallery traces Burning Man's origins from its countercultural roots in the San Francisco Bay Area to the world-famous city in the desert it is today.
