Discussion Bound« Back to Events
Join our monthly book discussion where we read and discuss books that relate to artwork in our galleries. Moderated by a member of the Museum’s staff or a volunteer, we exchange ideas and learn about books, art and each other. Bring your copy of the book.
This month’s book:
Henry Darger, Throw Away Boy by Jim Elledge
Jim Elledge cuts through the cloud of controversy and rediscovers “outsider artist” Henry Darger as a damaged, fearful gay man, raised in a world unaware of the consequences of child abuse or gay shame.
Read in conjunction with Social Geographies: Interpreting Space and Place.
