"Vestiges & Verse: Notes from the Newfangled Epic", organised by Valérie Rousseau, in collaboration with Lille Métropole Musée d’art moderne, d’art contemporain et d’art brut, considers the work of 21 self-taught artists through the idiosyncratic structure of their lifelong, intricate narratives. Focusing on the writing practice of the artists and the mechanisms behind their visual storytelling, Vestiges & Verse brings together artworks by seminal artists including Aloïse Corbaz, Henry Darger, James Edward Deeds, Paul Laffoley, Jean Perdrizet, Achilles G. Rizzoli and Adolf Wölfli, alongside more recently discovered self-taught creators such as Jean-Daniel Allanche, Josep Baqué, William A. Hall, Carlo Keshishian, Susan Te Kahurangi King and Richard Saholt.
