Divine Divine Disorder, Conserving the Chaos: Conference on the Conservation of Folk and Outsider Art
This conference is focused on highlighting the under-appreciated decorative works of non-traditional artists. The conservation of these works is vital to preserving the life story of those artists outside the main stream art community. Artists come from all walks of life and every ethnic background, Folk and Outsider art is many times strongly patriotic, intensely spiritual, but always deeply personal. If not preserved we lose the window into the lives of the artists and their folk traditions.
The Conference will be held February 15-16, 2012 on the campus of Northwestern University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. The program will feature two days of contributed papers and a poster session. We are soliciting oral and poster presentations that discuss topics which center on Folk and Outsider art conservation and preservation. These include treatments, applications, future development directions, and research.
