From August 5, 2011 to September 11, 2011
Together the husband and wife team of Jim Roche and Alexa Kleinbard have amassed one of the most important collections of self-taught, outsider, and visionary art in the United States. Their shared vision as collectors reflect their own sensibilities as working artists. Since the early 1970s, Kleinbard and Roche have pioneered the promotion, understanding, and appreciation of artists who work beyond the parameters of the art gallery and museum system. Many of the artists in their collection are not heavily represented in other places, resulting in a unique and highly personal collection.
This exhibition features the art of Jesse James Aaron, Columbus “Dude” McGriff, O.L. Samuels, Roger Rice, John Robert Ellis, and many more.
