Book Review: Inner Worlds Outside at Whitechapel Gallery - London
Created outside the mainstream and the art world, Inner Worlds Outside, shown in 2006 at the Whitechapel Gallery - London, explores the sublime parallels between some of the greatest names of the twentieth century art and artists mainly considerd as 'self taught' or regarded as 'social outcasts'.
Separating by term, the exhibition easily resolves the art historical defined boundaries of media or periodes and offers an open perspective on intuitively created works of art which focus on dreams, imaginary landscapes, the erotic body and the allure of language.
Including works by Hans Bellmer, Arthur Bispo do Rosário, Egon Schiele, Martín Ramírez, Alfred Kubin, Augustine Lesage, Sava Sekulic and a major lage scale drawing by Chris Hipkiss amongst others.
